Mastitis is the inflammation of breast tissue that can sometimes lead to an infection. Mastitis is usually the result of a blocked milk duct that hasn’t cleared. Some of the milk banked up behind the blocked duct can be forced into nearby breast tissue, causing the tissue to become inflamed. The inflammation is called mastitis; infection may or may not be present when one is suffering from mastitis. You can continue breastfeeding your baby if you have mastitis. However, it may be more difficult due to the mentioned symptoms. At the same time, a reusable cold pack can help relieve the symptoms.

Side Effects of Breastfeeding
A plugged milk duct. Often, milk ducts get plugged when there is more milk being produced than there is leaving the breast. Women may feel pain in an area of the breast or a lump may form under the skin where the duct is plugged. To help unclog the duct and ease pain:
- Take warm showers or use warm compresses on the area. Massage the area several times a day. Then, breastfeed your baby right away.
- Position your baby’s chin so that it points toward the clogged area during feeding. This will help that area of the breast empty sooner.
- Gently massage the lump while your baby feeds. It may take 2 to 3 feedings for the lump to go away. You also can use a manual (hand) or electric pump for a few minutes to help draw out the clogged milk while gently massaging the area.
- Apply cold compresses (ice wrapped in a thin towel) between feedings.
