Has anyone had a breast abscess drained or treated when breastfeeding? Also did it scared you? Meaning it can be confused for cancer because of the way it feels and looks?

I had one in left side. Depending how deep it is inside the breast with determine the pain. But it only takes 30 seconds to aspirate the fluid. 99.9% it's just a cysts nothing to worry about. I was scared at the thought of it being there and just wanted it gone. You'll be ok. Still be able to breast feed after a couple hours

Cali^Mom asks My 5 year old keeps putting her hair in her mouth all the time. Any ideas on how to break the habit? She started it last summer and I just put it in a pony or braid every day until she stopped but now she's started it again and her hair is so long the pony or braid reaches to her mouth. I don't have time some mornings for elaborate hair styles. Help!
