So, I had to go to work this afternoon for a meeting and b/c of that I went 5 hours b/w feedings (Cam had a pumped bottle with the sitter). When I went to nurse him when I came home, I noticed my left breast had some red streaks and splotches on it. It is fairly tender to touch, but honestly, they are always kind of tender to touch! I would say that it is more sore probably than right, but not any sharp pains. It also feels warm, but not that much different than right, and I wouldn't say it is really hot and I'm not sure if it is warmer than normal. I am not feeling sick or anything except tired and kind of achy, but I do feel achy when I'm tired and I should be tired after 11 weeks of no sleep Do you think this could be the beginning of mastitis or something else?? I did take a hot shower and tried to massage that breast tonight in case it is just a clogged duct. If anything, it feels more sore now after doing that, but I do think I was able to empty it pretty well and I have been having Cam nurse more on that side. Does anyone know if mastitis starts slowly? I am SO hoping that this just goes away and is nothing! Oh, I also skipped a feeding yesterday and Cam got a bottle b/c we were at the zoo so I'm not sure if that is affecting it too. Anyone have experience with something like this?
