I think I have an infection in one breast. I'm on amoxicillin for it. It hurts so bad to nurse on that breast but the pumps is bearable so I've been pumping and dumping. I've been nursing on the other breast but it seems like its not filling her up. I've got a small stash in the freezer I'm going to start giving her if she still acts hungry after a feeding but its going to go fast so I'm wondering if I need to dump or if I can freeze the milk and give it to her later like normal. Thanks!Answer Question

sounds like mastitis. Yes you can feed her that milk. The oyher breast will also compensate supply.

Usually the bleb is not an infection and I can safely say that popping it did not cause thrush. Thrush is accompanied with milk blebs often so you most likely had thrush and the bleb was a side effect of the thrush. You do not need to pump and dump and you actually do not need to pump from that side at all if you don't want to. You can nurse normally and pump after to help rid the milk from the blocked duct. Please check out this article to help you through the bleb. I hope you feel better soon and don't worry about pumping and dumping just feed baby normally. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mom/nipplebleb.html
