Why don't u feed now.. the remaining one buy a pump n store it in fridge

Rebecca Prakash

Many of us had csection and started to feed from day 2. So you start now, you have engorged breast and its painful please extract the milk and throw away, then start feeding. Do it right away if not you will be down with fever.

Start feeding your baby now... massage your breast and express the milk it will help.. more you feed more you will feel better.. keep trying

Take a hot water bath. Gently massage your breasts and squeeze out milk... Initially it will be painful, but will be ok once some of the milk is pumped out.

Reshma Kudva

Use a manual pump and pump out the milk to avoid fever. Moreover if the breast is too firm the baby finds it difficult to suck.
