    Default Trying to get milk production up

    Hi all,
    I spend three days away from bb and forgot to bring breast pump with me.. By the third day my breasts were very painful and full.
    Since I got back home and have been able to allow bb to latch on it seems nothing comes out.
    My question is, is there still hope for me to get milk supply up again or have I left it too long.
    I'm taking Fenugreek and fennel and am trying to get bb on breast as much as possible but it's getting quite painful.
    Any advice please.
    Thanks.

    Express a bit before trying to latch? Maybe mastitis?

    If they are so full that bub is finding it hard to latch then just hand express a little until they soften just enough for bub to latch on.

    If they are as hard as basketballs then bub won't be able to latch successfully.

    Best of luck!
