Mastitis while breastfeeding
As the recipient of the Massachusetts Young Dietitian of the Year award, she believes in making healthy eating simple, sustainable, and delicious.

Because mastitis is an infection, it can result in discomfort, soreness and even fever — the last thing you need while caring for a new baby. The good news is that babies do not suffer from mastitis and the antibacterial properties in breastmilk actually help protect them from the bacteria so keep nursing or pumping through your mastitis! Swift evaluation and treatment will make a world of difference. And taking good care of yourself is key for both recovery and prevention.
