I’ve gone to bed with a heating pad..

Doesn’t that sound romantic? :) Yesterday started out wonderful because my Super Dh was off for some Holiday (Confederate Memorial?) and we loooove to have Daddy home with us.The day was spent doing some outside chores..cutting grass, weed eating, working on scraping boards for our bathroom remodeling project, with the kids playing outside all day long.

In the evening, I begin to notice that my breast began to get extremely sore (sorry, male readers!) and I started getting really chilled. By nightfall, I knew the diagnosis for the all-to-familiar-feeling: mastitis. I began to take the proper steps for optimal comfort: a grand-sitter, an hour long bath, a heating pad, an enthusiastic baby, and lots of rest. Oh, and an ibuprofen.

So, here I lay (lie?) with the heating pad still going and the chills still happenin’. I’m waiting on my mom to bring me a few natural remedies from the health food store, which include high doses of Vitamin C and Echinacea Root Tincture. And let’s not forget whole cloves of garlic for me to ingest. I’m all about swallowing raw garlic on a regular basis, you know.

So now you know the scoop regarding my love affair with my heating pad. It’s a Burnin’ love.


  1. Oh, I'm so sorry! I've only had to deal with that a couple of times while nursing babies and it's very fluish. Thank goodness you have help and I hope you feel better soon.

  2. I know the pain of that,as it has happened to me a couple of time while nursing my children. I hope you find relief soon.

  3. You poor thing. It's been years since I been though this but I do remember. Hopefully you will be doing well soon.

  4. Been there, no fun! Hope you feel better soon!!

  5. Hey Monica,

    I was wandering about the friday giveaway you were doing with the all natural products. I am starting to use all natural products. We get all our cleaning products through the company Melaleuca. They are safe and natural. Please let me know. And any advise you could give would be great.

  6. You are so funny, girl... even though your "problem" is certainly NOT funny!! Hope you're better soon, mama.
