You need to nurse and rest as much as possible. Lots of warm compresses and breast massage (massage down towards the nipple.) Also, do this while nursing. Point baby's chin towards engorged area. Use the sink or a bowl, fill with very warm water, lean over with your breast in the bowl and massage. Drink plenty of fluids, nurse, and rest.
