Brief Answer:
can be related to breast feeding

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Breast pain on one side can be due to breast engorgement or abscess or due to trauma.
It can be related to breast feeding or any unnoticed injury.
I will suggest her to take analgesic medication and consult an OBGYN specialist to get properly examined, and get appropriate treatment timely.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

She also had fever later evening. Can it be because of any internal injury ? As of now I have given her paracetamol for fever.
