BREAST MILK HELP!

Its been almost 3 weeks since i gave birth im not breast feeding.

My boobs are driving me crazy My left boob is the only one thats still leaking but now my right one is hurting i think milk is coming in that one again? Not sure if that can happen? I tried letting the hot water hit my back didnt help at all.

Tight Bra Didnt Work.

  • Cabbage Leaves. Lightly cut them so that the juices can be next to your boobs and put them in your bra.

    Sigh. On the other hand, since you are still producing milk, how's about feeding it to your baby? Sorry, couldn't help myself...

  • i did both... my daughter lost too much weight so they put her on formula at the hospital.. my son wasnt getting full off my milk to i gave him some formula.. i dont care what other moms do as long as the baby is being fed :) its your choice

  • try hand expressing a little at a time to ease the pain not much-just enough to not be engorged.

  • anytime you feel it coming down use your forearms to press against your boobs with a great amount of force...you may still leak a lil bit but, it does train them to stop after about 2 weeks or so....also the cabbage leaves I heard were a great remedy also!
