nurse nurse nurse!c If your babe is constantly nursing you boobs won't be engorged and it will tell your body to make more milk. I've heard oatmeal is good for milk supply too. if you really need to get rid of the engorgement you can crush the veins in cabbage leaves and place a whole leaf over your breast for about 30 minutes a couple times a day.

Re: engorged and not producing enough

Oh, those are SO painful. The only way I can get them to go away is to get into the HOT shower and have my husband massage where it is clogged. I can't put myself through the pain but I can grit my teeth and bear it if he does. So sorry mama. I hope relief isn't far away.
