Painful boobs

Hello everyone!

I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl last Friday image We are bottle feeding and my breasts are now so heavy / sore / painful... I know this is normal but I just wondered if there was anything I can do to make them feel better, and also how long they would feel like this for? does the pain just ease off itself eventually, if so how long does it take? sorry about all the questions but they are making me so uncomfortable lol

Thank you! xxx


  • You could express some milk (hand express or with a pump) just to lighten them up a little bit?

    It doesn't take too long for the milk to dry up, about a week, I'd say? (People, please, correct me if I'm wrong, it was a very long time ago for me!)
