milk from my affected breast
I have just been to the doctors for what I thought was a clogged milk duct. Turned out, it was an pus-filled abscess which they had to drain then and there as it was quite large and I was feverish.
The doctor advised to continue to express from my affected breast, but not to give the milk to my 5 week old baby.
My question is- is the milk from my affected breast really not safe for my baby? It makes me want to cry when I have to throw out 4oz of breast milk down the drain! :(
