I have a 7 1/2 month old dd and on Friday, I wound up with mastitis. Fever, aches, chills, etc. I went to urgent care and the doctor put me on Keflex (sp?) to clear up the infection. I have always supplemented but still get approximately 20 ounces a day through either nursing or pumping. I have continued to do both through the infection but my milk supply has dropped dramatically. I am pumping for much longer and not going for more than three hours between pumping or nursing sessions. What can I do?? Could I try Fenugreek? Has anyone had success with that? I am really not ready to be done yet and would like to get my supply back up again. Any help is greatly appreciated!
