My first son I pumped for 4 months and gave a bottle of breast milk -- 14 months later with my new son, he is doing good with breastfeeding (using a nipple shield) but I have had mastisis (103 fever), clogged ducts and surface clogs (that had to be removed with a sterile needle). Do these early problems go away!!! It is just hard trying to juggle taking care of 2 in diapers and wanting to breastfeed. My son is gaingin weight great.....but I am constantly worrying if I am going to get a cogged duct or infection again...was hoping after the first 6 weeks maybe these early problems will get better -- is there hope that breastfeeding will get easier?
