OMG!! OUCH! My milk comes in faster than I can get it out.. I pump and bf.. and still end up with rockhard side boobs.. I am waiting for everyone to finish their showers so I can just sit in the hot shower and hope it helps get more out when I pump more.. I seriously looks like Ive gotten a boob job. Lol

Ha! This is me, too. I had to pump some out today because I'm in so much pain. My husband has even given me a porn star name. Ha!

Mine were that way two weeks ago. Fyi....pumping and moist heat makes you produce more. If you pump to comfort like just a couple of minutes and only use moist heat when you do that it will regulate quicker.

Cold compresses, like bag of frozen peas or other cold pack, help reduce swelling and pain. You can use heat to soften breast just before latching or expressing but just enough to relieve pain and to help latch baby. But agree with skylarkdancer that pumping and hot showers only encourage more milk production. Ibuprofen also helps with pain and swelling.

 My milk came in yesterday (2 days pp).  Baby has been cluster feeding since birth, so he is emptying them fast.  No pumping here yet.
