Hi bubby was born on Monday and my milk started coming in yesterday.
Well today, seriously I'm not joking when I say my boobs are like soccer balls! They are normally just average size, a handful, but today it's just ridiculous.
I've been engorced before with my DS1, but never like this.
Midwife came round today and we spoke about it and she said just feed bub and minimal expressing, which is fine as I know its a supply and demand type thing but my boobs are so full and sore that I need relief.
Bub only feeds one side at a time as he is seriously having to gulp it down and it barely makes a difference to my boob.
I'm lucky to have so much milk, I know that, and not complaining but it's really hurting me a lot.
I have a big lump under my right arm too.
I've tried heat packs and cold packs and a hot shower but nothing is helping and I'm worried about mastitis.
Any other suggestions?
