Just keep trying, keep feeding him as much as you can. The fullness and pain will last a few days as your milk supply is really coming in, but the worst thing to do is stop nursing. You can take a shower and let the water run on your chest, and also try cool packs when you can. It really will ease up in a few days, just keep feeding him!

Pump some by hand? Maybe offer more often?

GL mumma. Congratulations on your little one.

What they said. Warm shower and hand pump. You may not get a lot out, but it might help some. Good luck

 Hes brand new and still learning. Just keep offering and encouraging him and he'll get it soon enough. It can be uncomfortable when our milk comes in and baby can be a little overwhelmed as they are still learning and use to just the colostrum. You are doing Great keep up the good work and everything will be alright! breastfeeding

The warm shower helps. Is he fully awake when he's eating? I ask because at that age my ds was always sleeping and didn't really seem interested in eating, so we had to do things to try and get him to wake up.
