abscess and staff infection

by Megan
(California )

I don't know what all causes abscess but when they first took sample for culture test they found staff infection.


I had the surgery today and now around my nipple I have hard tender lumps. Clogged ducts I assume. Should I breast feed to get rid of them or is it too dangerous for baby. I already tried pumping and it's still there.

Hi Megan

Yes, you can continue to breastfeed. The staph infection cannot be transferred to baby via the milk.
It is important that you continue to breastfeed so that you do not get a further mastitis infection.

What if I have a crack in my nipple. Could the baby pass bacteria into my breast when nursing.

Breastfeeding and abcesses
by: Lysda

If you are still wanting to breastfeed, please know that a single breast can produce enough to feed your child without supplementation for a year and beyond.

If you have made the decision to wean from at least the effected breast, the best thing to do is stop nursing or otherwise stimulating the nipple. This will let your breast know to stop making milk. You can use cold cabbage leaves on your breast to help ease the tenderness, as well as hot showers. If you are trying to dry up both breasts, you can eat sage or large amounts of peppermint, as they have been known to dry up milk supply.

abscess
by: Tracy, CBC, CLD (CBI)

Your surgeon or doctor may advise you to stop breastfeeding, but there are major advantages to continued breastfeeding (with and/or without surgery)...

- Breast milk contains antibodies and healing properties that will help heal the breast much quicker.

- Breast milk is sterile and will help flush and clean out the wound and infected area.

- Abrupt weaning will most likely cause infection because of breast engorgement. You need to empty your breasts regularly and this will prevent infection and sore breasts.

- Draining the breast can prevent pressure on the incision

Don’t worry about baby getting sick from the infection (even if pus is visible in the milk), moms are always advised to continue breastfeeding…it cannot harm baby in any way.
