Many thanks

savoy cabbage leaf tucked in your bra - amazing, soothing, healing…
Replace when they get warm and floppy (the leaves not her boobs!)

Dangle feeding (baby on bed, mum on all fours over the baby), and feeding lots from the affected side.

I agree with Angie, feed lots from the affected side. I got mastitis frequently with #2, and was always flat out in bed with fever.  No dangle feeding for me in that situation, and I’ve never tried the cabbage leaf (although I’ve heard it works well).  Whatever she does in addition, just nurse through it- that’s what always worked well for me.

I hope she feels better soon!!!!
