My sister's DD is 4 days old, milk has just come in, and she is so totally engorged that even her sleep shirt causes discomfort. She has a golf-ball size lump under her arm. DD is managing to latch even though the nipple is quite reduced due to the engorgement. This is her 2nd so she isn't a stranger to BF but didn't go through this with her first, so she's wondering what she can do to get some relief?? She is not thinking it's mastitis. Any suggestions?? She did have to take a pain reliever already... cabbage leaves? Cold compresses? Anything??
THANKS a million!!
