In almost a day my breasts went from normal size to filled to capacity. My left breast is so engorged that my baby wont even try to stay latched on. I dont own any breast pumps, and am having some trouble manually expressing it. Any and all advice would be soo greatly appreciated as to how I could get all this milk out of my breasts, Im scared they are going to explode hahah.Answer Question

LOL. They won't explode but it sure does feel like it. With my first, i didn't have a pump either. i had to get in the shower and massage the crap out of them. The warm water will stimulate them some so you can get some milk out. With my 2nd, I rented a pump from the hospital. They are like 30 a month, and any parts that attach to your body and breastmilk will go thru, they give you new pieces, and you keep those parts. I'm not sure how all hospitals are about renting them, but if you have the money, it makes things so much easier. Also, you could call your lactation consultant at the hospital as well, they always have great ideas.
