  • Try a shower as warm as you can stand it with out burning your self for 20-30mins, then take eucalyptus leaves boil them to where they are warm wrap your breast in the leaves for the same amount of time. Be sure to thoroughly clean your breast before attempting to feed. Repeat this 3 times a day at least for three days you should gain full milk supply and unclog your ducts.. My grams who was a medicine woman use to have woman do this and it worked 100% of the time. Good luck.

  • I've never heard of the eucalyptus leaves but it's worth a try. And as to doc...calling will do nothing unless it becomes mastitis. You will only be told to do the things you're already doing.

  • Call the Dr if you start running a fever
