Nursing Tips from a New Mom
Frozen peas aren't just for dinner anymore! If your nipples are sore, a cold compress will help. When I was a ballet dancer (a long time ago), frozen peas were a great remedy for my sore knees. As a new mom, that same bag of peas is great for relieving sore nipples!
Warm compresses help the milk flow! No one ever told me my milk ducts would be engorged and even blocked. Warm showers help, but compresses might work even better for you. Try to heat up a washcloth or a flax pillow in the microwave and conform it to the shape of your breast for relief.
Happy nursing new moms!
