Preventing Breast Infection

Depending on the underlying condition, preventing breast infection is as easy as following good breastfeeding techniques. Speak to a lactation specialist at Florida Hospital to learn more about how to avoid breast infection.

These are some of the ways to prevent breast infection with proper breastfeeding techniques:

  • Nipple care that prevents and treats cracking or irritation
  • Routine feeding and milk pumping to prevent breast engorgement
  • Good latching by the baby using good feeding technique
  • Slowly weaning babies off breastfeeding instead of an abrupt stop
