Breastfeeding my three day old. My breasts are very full and she does not fully empty them. Is that okay or will I develop mastitis?

Breast feeding ?: There is one major cause and that would be how well she is latching. If she is not on so that most of the arola is covered and just on the nipple itself, she will not get the milk out as she needs and you will get very sore. If you are so full she can't latch, try expressing some milk in advance to soften the area to make it easier for her to get on well. Lactation consult is a great help too. ...Read more
