Mastitis can be prevented by proper breast feeding methods to avoid development of milk stasis and providing early treatment if signs of mastitis appear.

Infant should be well attached to the breast during breast feeding and should be fed with no restrictions in the amount and frequency of feeding.

During difficulty in suckling of milk by the infant due to swollen breast, the mother can express her milk by softening the breasts and relieve the discomfort and help the infant to suckle easily.
