<blockquote><b>Quoting JQWE200:</b>" my milk is slowly coming in and my breast are beginning to become very temder and sore i dont have a pump yet but what are some things i can do to relief this i put cabbage on my chest earlier"</blockquote>
Nurse a LOT. Don't overuse the cabbage, it is meant to reduce supply& that i shy it offers relief. Using it some is fine...as engorgement is a form of oversupply, just don't do it constantly.
You can always hand express. Doing so in the shower under warm water is the easiest when learning how - you don't have to aim & the warm water helps trigger letdown. Here is a how to video to help you learn how:
Fill a big dish or two with very warm water. Set it on a counter or table and lean over it so that your breasts are submerged. Your milk will flow into the water. Also, nurse nurse nurse! Walmart over here is 24 hrs. I love my Madela harmony. I prefer it to my pump on style and it only cost $35. I wouldn't have made it the engorgement without.
