breastfeeding engorgement solution

I am going to a football game on Sat. I am going to try and feed my son before we drop him and his brothers at my mom's and then pump on the way to the game. Any tips on how to deal with the engorgement that will occur anyways during the game? I am hoping to not soak my shirt or cry with the burn of overfull ta-tas. Help please!

  • You can wear hard breast shells in your bra. You may have to change pads in them or dump them at some point.

  • You could take your baby with you and keep the baby in a sling.
