Hello,

You are having breast engorgement when too much milk is contained within them.

It is caused by insufficient breast feeding and /or blocked milk ducts.

When engorged the breasts may swell, throb, and cause extreme pain. Engorgement may lead to inflammation of the breast.

Apply cold compresses to your breasts between feedings to reduce swelling. Stop applying once you notice the swelling beginning to lessen.

You may also take a pain reliever such as Tylenol or Advil. Because Advil is an anti-inflammatory medication, it will help with reducing any swelling as well as relieving pain.

Apply warm moist compresses to your breasts only before feed.

Along with the heat or immediately after, massage your breast with your fingertips in a circular motion from the chest wall down to the nipple.

You can have an idea how to massage the breast tissue and to pump out the milk if the baby at all not able to suck in the following web site.

If it does not help you should contact your doctor as prolonged stasis may lead to mastitis.
