Hey, Mamas!

We love to share and talk about the upside to breastfeeding. It’s an amazing bonding moment for mom and baby and allows the baby to get nourished. However, many moms (as many as 1 in 10 breastfeeding women) get Mastitis.

This can be very painful and uncomfortable for mom and baby, so we want to share some helpful tips on how you can prevent and treat Mastitis.

TIPS TO PREVENT & TREAT MASTITIS

Mastitis is the inflammation or swelling in the breast, which is usually caused by an infection. It is most common when a woman is breastfeeding, but it can happen at other times as well.

It is caused by milk that is trapped in the breast, but other causes include:

A blocked milk duct: When breasts don't completely empty during a feeding, one of your milk ducts can become blogged. This blockage can further cause milk to back up, which is what leads to breast infection.

Bacteria entering your breast: Bacteria can enter milk ducts through the cracked skin of your nipple or through a milk duct opening. This creates a breeding ground for the bacteria. Make sure to be sanitary and use nipple cream!

Check out our latest blog to see the full list on how to treat and prevent Mastitis!
