Tip of the day

Engorgement (full, sore breasts)

To get some relief from breast engorgement, you could try the following tips:

  • Take your bra off completely before beginning to breastfeed.
  • Warm your breasts with a warm cloth before breastfeeding to help your let-down.
  • Hand-express a little milk or try reverse pressure softening before starting the feed. This can help your baby attach more easily. Make sure baby attaches well.
  • Massage your breast gently while breastfeeding.
  • Vary breastfeeding positions – for example, you could try the cradle hold at one feed, and the football hold at the next.
  • Place an ice-pack wrapped in cloth on your breast to relieve pain and inflammation after breastfeeding. Some mothers find a chilled lettuce leaf placed over the breast can be helpful too.
