Mastitis for second time :(

Hi everyone! I wanted to say say hi and take any advice from any mama out there. I have a 7 week old baby and just yesterday a mastitis infection came back on my right breast. When baby was 2 weeks old I got mastitis on my left breast and since then my milk production on that breast decreased significantly. I'm terrified that this is going to happens now on my right breast! Does any experience mom can advise me or tell me if my milk supply its going to be ok? Thanks!

 It shouldn't effect your supply unless you are avoiding nursing on that side.

How is the mastitis being treated? One thing you must do is to keep the milk moving, and baby is best for that. Also, be sure to take probiotic during and after antibiotic treatment to avoid thrush/yeast infection.

Oh I have heard about the probiotic. I'm going to whole food store tomorrow to get that(Thank you! That's another concern that I had!) I have been treated with antibiotics that I just stared today. I will de finally keep breastfeeding and pumping. Thank you so much for the replies I really appreciate it!

No pumping. It will cause an oversupply which is just an invitation for mastitis.

Exactly.
