    Think I might be developing mastitis in my other boob now....it is hot and sore but not as bad a the other one so I am hoping I can stop it getting worse. I have put hot flannels on it and keep massaging the sor area but it is still there. Does anyone have any advice?

    This is the best thing to do. The massage helps unblock the ducts and then the expressing drains the boobie right down so it can fill up from scratch :)

    Spoke to my HV today and she thinks it could be to do with thrush. Seren has had oral thrush on and off since a few weeks old and it looks like it might have gone into my milk ducts on the right side as that is where I am getting a lot of pain. Am due to see Dr tomorrow, hope this will soon sort itself out :(
