  • Hi
    i had more milk production in 1st 2 months after delivery. And i used to feed one breast for 25 minutes for one time. And after 2 hrs i feed the other breast for half n hour. May be because of this i had breast engorgement 2 times and had high fever and shivering. The Dr said breast may have infected milk or clogged milk and he advised a hot water compression and tablets for fever and infection.

    Then the milk production and breast size have reduced. And after 3 months i had the same problem of breast pain and high fever shivering. But at that time when touching my breast it is not feel full of milk. It is soft and saggy feeling. But i had unbearable pain. Again went to hospital and adiviced the same and also gave an injection for pain relief.

    Now my problem is continuous hot water compression reduced my breast size alot. Now the breast is looks like very saggy and soft even when it has milk. Also i feel like the there is not enough milk for my baby to feed now. These two things make me depressing heavily. Can you suggest any solution to bring back my beast size which really reduced after hot compression.

    Please please reply��
