    Congratulations!

    Yes, it will get better. Your milk must have only JUST come in! It won't take long.
    Cabbage leaves can help with mastitis pain I think.

    Make sure you feed as much as bub wants. That will help regulate the milk your breasts make.
    If you get any red, hard or burning sore spots, make sure bub feeds off that breast. Mastitis comes on quickly. I have never been as sick as when I had it. Best to try and avoid it. If you don't have much info about it, google it so you are aware of what to look out for.

    My boobs were like massive watermelons 3 days after birth, but settled down quite quickly.

    Hello Dear,
    I can feel your pain and distress, same happen to me and all settle within 4wks time.
    For Sore nipples....apply breast milk to them as many time as you can plus nubby should be lachting properly.
    For full breast you can apply cold packs after feed especially at night and is your are concerned about milk supply apply hot pack before feeding but one at a time.
    Good Luck

    I would do a double feed on that side then express in the shower with warm water. Keep checking for lumps and massage them out. They will settle soon. Lots of cold compressors will help x

    I've just been dealing with this over the last few days. My right boob was so sore on the side to the point that I couldn't even touch it. I had it checked and it wasn't mastitis. I had to feed him off that side, facing his chin at the sore part and feed him. It hurt like hell, the suction from tender pain was excruciating, but the tenderness got better.

    lots of great advice already. With DS2 I got really engorged (worse than with DS1), when my milk came in. The advice from my middy was to use cold compresses (to help slow milk production), and definitely feed off that side but avoid expressing - only if necessary and only a tiny bit to relieve the pain (the more you express the more milk your body will produce, so it can be counter-productive). As others have mentioned, keep an eye out for any red patches or hard lumps. I've had mastitis and had no pain or hard lumps, but a large red patch and flu-like symptoms.
