As a new mama, you probably thought breastfeeding might be hard -- and even painful at times. But lumps, a burning sensation and a fever? That might be the breast infection mastitis. Here's what you need to know about this common condition.

I've been pumping since day 3 and so far I've had no problems. I did the same with DS for 4 1/2 months and did once have a blockage for about 24 hours which was pretty painful but fortunately it didn't progress to full blown mastitis
