Production after previous mastitis?

Postby krysydawn » Thu Apr 19, 2012 10:21 pm

I BF my son 6.5 years ago.. He preferred the left side. I was so young and clueless, that I allowed this. I was a GOOD producer... Ended up with Mastitis on the right. From that point on, I stopped producing on the right side. Left side was PERFECT and I BF him for another 4mos on the left. (Because no matter what I did, the right would NOT produce again)....

Now my question is..... I was to BF again (currently pregnant) and I am afraid that my right side will never produce again. To this day, if I tried to get drops out of them.. It would be the left and not the right. (Sounds creepy but hey curiosity lol) I'm scared to go through this again. I really want to BF this baby.

Any experiences or tips.. helpful hints? Anything would be much appreciated!!
