How to Relieve Engorged Breasts
I found that breast pumping before and after feedings helped ease the pain of engorged breasts. This will also keep your milk supply up and you’ll have fresh milk from the fridge for later! Other helpful remedies are nice, soothing hot showers. You’ll definitely feel much more relaxed all over after a steamy shower, and it’s a nice break for mom! Lastly, hot compresses work really well too to relieve your sore breasts. For more great tips, keep watching!
