What can I do to get rid of breast engorgement?

Engorgement: Pain in the breasts of nursing mothers is usually a symptom of engorgement. This occurs when your breasts are producing more milk that your infant is drinking. Applying warm or cool compresses and nursing/pumping more frequently usually helps relieve the pain and prevent progression. However, redness, severe pain, fever or abnormal nipple discharge warrants a visit to your doctor.

Ice Packs/NSAIDs: If you're not breastfeeding or pumping, it typically takes around 7-10 days after delivery to return to a non-pregnant/non-lactating hormonal level. During that time, you might feel some discomfort if your breasts become engorged with milk. Try applying cool compresses or ice packs, taking NSAIDs like ibuprofen or wearing supportive bra. If really uncomfortable, okay to express a small amount milk

Milk's in: Breast engorgement is fullness and tenderness of the breasts, usually experienced on about the 3-5th day after delivery, which signifies that milk production is in full swing!

How likely is it that you have an infection related to breastfeeding if you have breast engorgement and ineffective infant feeding patterns?

How likely is it that you have an infection related to breastfeeding if you have breast engorgement and ineffective infant feeding patterns?

Likely: If your breast is painful, red, swollen (besides engorgement) or you are feeling sick or have fever, do not delay - you could have mastitis and this needs prompt attention. Nurse VERY FREQUENTLY, massage breast to try and get the milk flowing, use pump if you have one to relieve engorgement. If those things aren't working, though, seek care today at an urgent care center or ER if you're ill.
