Engorgement is no joke! #TheRealitiesOfBreastfeeding So I'm up in the middle of the night of course ready to pump. Anyway I'm super engorged, so of course I'm thinking milk will come right away. WRONG!!! 😳 I had been pumping for over an hour and 1 breast did not want to let any milk out. I was totally having an are you kidding me moment. This was so frustrating! However I was in to much pain to be mad. I mean on the bright side I had milk in there right? After a couple of hours and still super engorged relief finally arrived (thanks to a wonderful nurse 😘) So here's my tip to you'll
When your super engorged or engorged period
1. WARM COMPRESS!!! Take warm wet washcloths and place them over your breast. Heat moves milk :)
2. MASSAGE MASSAGE MASSAGE omg the pain of it all. If your super engorged like i was then this will slightly hurt. Buttttt you have to do it
3. DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE listen to your body. When you feel you need to pump which is usually every 3-4 hours, then pump.
I can laugh about this now that it's over but she as in me was not during the process
Good Vibes All Day 💜
