who knows better than me..I am a mom of two...and have hyperlactation .. during the first year of feeding I change my bra and t-shirt almost 4 to 5 times a day irrespective of using breast pads (cloth ones, reusable (mee Mee) and use and throw (luvlap))..
breast engorgement is something which has become routine for me...
now how I tackle it -
** I use ice packs first..then take a bath with lukewarm water...this helps the glands to loosen the milk ( you can see the milk flowing automatically 😜)....

** i would suggest to gentle massage ur breast (make sure not too hard) using coconut oil avoiding the nipples at least twice this also helps alot...

** also try feeding ur baby frequently...it might be painful if it is engorged but that is how it is...

**I have used breast pump too but realized that the milk is more produced if u use it ..so I have given up on this machine🙈

also one problem I face is a white spot on my nipples..which is basically a nipple blockage or milk blister...so it's like very painful when u are feeding the baby but it will only go when u bear that pain..in one or two feeds it will go away...

so pretty ladies take care and happy feeding🙂

niple will clean every time after feeding,with water or cotton cloth.
also when nipples are dry masaage with cow's ghee.
