Colostrum Engorgement

Terry - October 22

I have been producing colostrum since I was about 7 months pregnant. At least once a month, at least one, sometimes both of my br___ts seem to become engorged. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to prevent this, or do I need to just take care of the problem each time it happens?

same thing happens to me. Take a hot shower and put alternating hot and cold compresses on it. You can't express anything but you need to avoid a blockage. If they hurt you can take a tylenol.

I heard that hot showers may induce the flow of the colostrum...althought there is no way of preventing it since it is your body getting prepared u can wear b___st pads to help save your bras
