As a little going away present for our trip today I got mastitis. I woke up with a fever and chills Monday night and fought it off all day yesterday. I tried the hot compress and lots of Advil. What has seemed to do the trick, I am no longer red and inflamed this morning, was getting the boy to nurse upside down. It may feel and look weird but it helped him to drain the milk from the inflamed parts.

Wish us luck on our trip!
