Iv just finished exclusively bf my nearly 9month dd:cry: and am suffering with engorgment. Does anyone know how long it will last? Iv been told not to express off as this will continue milk production. Iv also tried a hot bath? I last bf her mon bedtime and my boobs are so hard and painful. Any suggestions?


  • Hello, I went through the same recently. Sounds very strange, but get yourself a nice savoy cabbage and chill it in the fridge. Then pop a couple of leaves inside your bra for about half an hour - you'll find the shape of the leaves makes a pretty good fit lol- it feels weird and squirmy at first, but oh it works wonders!

    Paracetamol will help too - and don't worry it only lasts 2 or 3 days....
