Close call! Little People, Big World star Tori Roloff took to her Instagram Story on Friday, January 3, to reveal she nearly suffered from mastitis. “Caught the clogged duct before it turned into mastitis, thank God,” the 28-year-old captioned a sweet photo with her sleeping daughter, Lilah. “Thanks for the advice. We’ll be here today.”
Previously, the mother of two — who also shares a son, Jackson, with husband Zach Roloff — admitted getting the painful infection was one of her biggest fears. “Y’all are so sweet for wishing me well,” Tori wrote to her followers on December 7, after previously sharing she was feeling under the weather. “I’m good. I let too much time pass in between feedings last night. For those breast-feeding mamas, you know … mess your whole body up. Just so thankful it wasn’t mastitis. I’m legit terrified to get that haha,” she wrote. “Feeling better though!! Thank you for your sweet notes!” she added.
Perhaps the reality star has been nervous because she witnessed sister-in-law Audrey Roloff suffer a bad case of inflamed breast tissue following the birth to her daughter in September 2018. “Since delivering Ember, I struggled with mastitis on and off. I was severely engorged. On top of that, Ember had a really severe tongue tie that we had to get surgically fixed about two or three weeks after she was born. Before that, I was having a lot of blistering and bruising,” Auj, also 28, shared on her own Instagram Story at the time.
