Chelsea DeBoer reveals that she’s dealing with a painful breastfeeding issue. She’s just overcoming the painful mastitis and she’s hoping it’s done.

Chelsea DeBoer recently gave birth to her daughter, Layne, and the little girl is almost two weeks old. Chelsea hasn’t opened up about her birthing experience, even though she tends to have some interesting stories. Her son Watson was born just hours after the first contraction, and the same thing happened with Aubree.

But it sounds like Chelsea DeBoer got to the hospital on time as she didn’t share any crazy stories about giving birth at the side of the road. But it sounds like this Teen Mom 2 star is indeed dealing with some post-birth issues.

Chelsea appears to be breastfeeding her daughter, as she revealed that she’s struggling with mastitis. She opened up about her issues, revealing that she never wants to deal with it again.

According to Medela professionals, “Mastitis is an inflammation of the breast that may be accompanied by infection. It usually causes fever and major discomfort. Mastitis mostly occurs during the first six weeks post-partum, however, it can also occur at any other point during lactation. It could be a draining issue or dried up milk that’s causing the issue.”

Chelsea revealed that she’s finally feeling better but also revealed that she’s excited to be done with it. One can imagine that her husband has stepped up and helped out with Watson and Aubree. While it’s exhausting to have small kids with a newborn, it’s even harder with a painful condition such as mastitis, and possible fever and discomfort.
