im breastfeeding my newborn. im about 3 days in and my breast are hard, sore, swollen and the nipples seem to be agitated as well. i want to keep breastfeeding i dont wanna give up on my baby plus i cannot afford formula. im looking for home remedies other than hot and cold alternating compresses to relive this discomfort. based on my symptoms webmd says i should call my dr, but i havent decided to do that yet. i know the signs and symptoms are that milk in coming in on demand....but this discomfort is a bit much. please help. besides these hot/cold compresses are not doing a thing for my poor breast.
