How can I deal with breast engorgement?

Severe Engorgement

Try to avoid severe engorgement because it can damage the milk ducts and reduce your ability to breastfeed successfully in the future. To treat severe engorgement use cold, raw, green cabbage leaves in the bra, and change as soon as they become wilted. And call a La Leche League leader or an IBCLC lactation consultant to help you.
