Mastitis causes a lot of pain that sometimes becomes unbearable. Mastitis usually occurs when the milk in your breasts builds up faster than it’s being removed. In such a situation, your milk ducts are blocked and that’s what causes pain especially when you are trying to feed your baby.
Other major causes of mastitis
➔ The baby not latching to the breasts properly
➔ Not feeding the baby enough or missing feeds
➔ Feeding on one breast more than the other
➔ Can damage a milk duct
Depending on the severity of your condition, I’ll first come visit you, talk to you about the kind of pain and issues that you are facing. If it’s mastitis, I usually recommend mothers to continue breastfeeding because by stopping the process, the blockage will just get worse with time and it’ll cause more pain.

I do understand the fact that breastfeeding your baby is one of the most beautiful and natural things in the world but at the same time for new mothers, it can be a little challenging too. If I’m being honest with you, there’s no “right time” to opt for consultation if you are facing trouble while feeding your little one. The moment you feel pain in your breasts, you should immediately seek a lactation consult.
Especially if it’s mastitis, waiting for the pain to go away could be dangerous. Mastitis can easily turn into an infection which then becomes more difficult to treat.
