currently going through my third round of mastitis and have no idea what is causing it. Went to the doctor today and was given an rx for antibiotics. I would really like to avoid taking these as they would wipe out my 9 week old and 2 year old's gut flora. They have never had antibiotics and I would like to keep it that way! I just started loading up on probiotics and garlic supplements today but I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do.
Also the doctor suggested that I pump after I feed to completely empty the breast, but wouldn't this just make my oversupply worse? I can usually only get LO to take one side per feed. He gets really angry if I offer the other side.
