  1. Hello and thank you for posting to us.Do not worry.Not giving feeds to baby causes blockage of milk ducts leading to breast engorgement.When there is oversupply of milk and no consumption it can cause inflammation of breast (mastitis).It causes lump in breast due to engorgement,red skin,pain and mild fever.She may give baby regular breast feeds.If there is still engorgement hot and cold compresses will be helpful.She should wear a well-fitted maternity bra with wide straps.If she gets fever again I suggest that you get her examined by a doctor.I sincerely hope this information helps you.Good day and take care!
