Good Lord, I thought the worst was over... three days after having my baby girl and I've tripled my cup size and in horrible pain :'( I'm prone to mastitis so if anyone has suggestions to avoid that it would be much appreciated!

breast pads and cold cabbage leaves. you can express enough that it doesn't hurt like hell anymore, but cabbage helps with the pain of engorgement, not sure why but it does.

keep breastfeeding if you can. It's not always comfortable, but it's far better for the baby unless you have a medical condition requiring your taking drugs, pumping would be a good thing too. Don't worry, this shall pass.
