In brief: Yes

The most common time to develop mastitis is while breast feeding.
Antibiotics may be necessary. It is important to keep breast feeding or 'pumping', this will help.

In brief: Yes

Actually, that's when mastitis is most common.
Normal skin bacteria can enter into your milk ducts from the nipple and cause mastitis.
