Omg what will help my gigantic, rock-hard boobs? I have heard cabbage leaves in my bra but I don't have any cabbage and I am in such pain. (I just had my baby 4 days ago so I'm all engorged).

Take a warm shower and let it release.. Massage them to express them.. Are you breastfeeding?

Warm shower. And Ive heard either wrapping your boobs tight with like an ace bandage or something for a few days. Good luck

The best thing to do is get milk out. If baby isn't hungry then pump and save the milk. Other than that, anything cold will help.

Breastfeeding - after a few days your supply will regulate and the engorgement won't occur.
