Avatar f tn I am bottle feeding and my breasts became engorged and they hurt so damn bad and are getting worse. They were just hard at the bottom and now they are all over. What do I do?? I read that squeezing them will make them produce more.
Avatar f tn I will agree with emi326 though that after the engorgement is gone, a warm shower before breastfeeding will helpthe milk flow and then you should try to feed baby more frequently if possible and make sure the latch on is giving baby enough milk to prevent becoming engorged again.

Avatar n tn How do i even it out? And after breastfeeding will my breasts go back to its original size? I dont want a perky or tight breasts. Small but sagged one will do. Tired of having heavy breasts and with uneven breats my back is aching and mynposture is gone so bad. Neckbpain is too much. Sorry for the ramble but this is affecting my confidence.
Avatar n tn My breasts are small as well. With my first they didn't grow or hurt but after i started breast feeding my breasts were engorged, but ended up going back to normal maybe just a bit bigger after stopping breastfeeding. You will produce milk without your breasts growing. So don't worry. I'm on my second pregnancy now, and they maybe grown a little.
Avatar f tn You can apply a hit compress to relieve some of the pressure with it engorged she may not be able to latch on. You can also hand express enough to soften the breast enough she can latch on .
Avatar f tn Cold cabbage leaves are commonly used to help with engorged breasts and mastitis. If you want your milk dried up it can take months or you can take a pill that will help dry up quickly that your doctor can prescribe.
2020005 tn?1628125976 Chloe has been 4 days boob free, my breasts are definitely full, just not engorged or anything, we slowly weaned so I'm sure that's why, I'm wondering if anyone knows about how long til my milk dries up? I know it takes longer, the longer you breastfed I'm just wondering, thanks!!
3055148 tn?1368211800 I assume this means your milk has come in and there getting engorged! Should hurt long, keep a bra on 24hrs a day even in bed and the shower it really helps to 'dry up' your milk supply!!
1528695 tn?1360582320 Your breasts won't stay engorged. Once your body adjusts to what baby is eating, they will be soft. If you aren't pumping enough, then nurse or pump more frequently.
Avatar f tn I had colostrum dripping down my belly. How can I make this stop?
Avatar n tn Also that will help lo latch as it can be difficult for them when your engorged. Give it a bit and your body will regulate how much milk you need and that will stop happening! Good luck!

2020005 tn?1628125976 Chloe is almost 9 weeks and still EBF, lately it seems like my breasts are getting larger, maybe because increased milk production as she gets older, she's eating more? Anyone else notice their breasts getting larger as baby grows?
Avatar f tn I get up twice in the night to feed my two week old but end up also having to express because my breasts are engorged.

I was pumping 2 1/2 ounces out if each breast in 5 minutes 6 times a day at first and now I just pump in the morning and feed more often..hope the best for you!!
