After the first 1 to 3 days your breastmilk changes in colour and amount. As the amount of breastmilk increases, your breasts may become full. This is called engorgement. This full feeling should go away in 1 or 2 days.
|Try these steps if your breasts feel very full or hard, or your baby has trouble latching:|
Wear a cotton bra that supports your breasts. Use cold packs on your breasts for 10 to 15 minutes between feedings. If you are very sore or your breasts are so hard that your baby cannot latch on, ask your health care provider for help.
