As taken from kellymom.com:
"Mastitis may occur more frequently with shield use, twins or other multiples, or when a baby suddenly sleeps longer during the night."
Well shoot. Shield use? Check. Twins? Check. Suddenly sleeping longer at night? Check.
I didn't ever have this problem when I breastfed Emily, but this morning I am in quite a bit of pain. (Just this week Elsie normally sleeps for 5-6 hours and Elias sleeps for 7-9 hours.) I guess I need to take my temperature and call the doctor?
Anybody else have any experience with Mastitis? How can you tell the difference between a plugged duct and mastitis? The symptoms are listed as the same, except maybe mastitis is more severe?
What a bummer. As if nursing twins wasn't hard enough!
