Breast engorgement

Thomas Father of a 5 m old girl 4 months ago
My Baby did not latch for the first few days and breast engorgement was an painful issue for my wife, the breasts were rock hard and even touching them caused pain, but what helped was a hot water bath along with breast massage in the engorged area and feeding the baby, if the baby refuses to feed then use a manual (Pigeon,Philips Avent) pump or a electric one (Spectra,Medella) to express and feed the baby, if nothing works use the painful method of squeezing the breast and emptying it.

I also had severe breast engorgement after 4 th day of c sec. my breast are feeling like rock solid and my baby is not able to suck at all. I absolutely have no idea what to do ..my friend was saying to massage it with oil. but breast became so tender that I couldn't even able to touch .forget about massage.then I soaked a towel in hot water and applied on breast .... immediately felt better...then I extracted all d milk with nipple puller bought from firstcry(device used to pull out flat nipples). it really worked.if you are facing breast engorgement then just apply towel dipped in hot water... remember water must be hot not lukewarm....then you can use breast pump or nipple puller and extract all d milk
