Breast Engorgement (Nodular Mastitis) FAQ

Q: I am a new mom. My daughter is 5 days old and I am breastfeeding her. This is my second child and I never had any pain breastfeeding my first baby. Now my breasts are very hard and hot. I know that I have engorged breast, but what can I do to fix it? My baby does not eat very much and I keep offering him to breastfeed, but he only eats for a few minutes. I got a nipple shield to help him latch and it does help, but I’d like to feel better and get rid of the pain. I tried to pump but I only get a 1/2 ounce to 1 ounce max. I take warm showers and nothing is helping. I cannot sleep because it is very painful when I try to lay down. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A: Hi Jenny, to get rid of the pain, try taking 2 capsules of SerraEnzyme 80,000IU 3 times per day, 30 minutes before eating a meal. It has also been proven to be very helpful for nursing moms to use HealthPoint to treat breast engorgement. See our Health Plan.


Q: I had my child on April 2nd and tried to breast feed. After days of pain, I stopped on Wednesday when I woke up with my breasts really engorged, they felt like they would burst. I did not stop breastfeeding because of the pain but I actually tried to breast feed. It’s just that my baby could not latch on correctly. I thought it would be better by now, but they are still engorged. Is this normal? The pain is sometimes too much!

A: Before you express, try a hot compress using a cloth or hand towel wet with hot water (as hot as you can bear) and hold it over on each of your breasts and those lumps under your arm, if any. The heat will help bring out the milk. When your breasts are rock hard because of the engorgement, it would really be difficult for your baby to latch and they won’t get better on their own unless you breastfeed or express. Also a very hot shower is good.

To help alleviate the pain, take SerraEnzyme 80,000IU and treat with electro-acupressure using our very safe HealthPoint device. See our Health Plan.

Congestión Mamaria (Mastitis Nodular) Preguntas Frecuentes

P: Soy mamá nueva. Mi hija tiene 5 días y la estoy amamantando. Este es mi segundo hijo y nunca tuve dolor amamantando a mi primer bebé. Ahora mis pechos están muy duros y calientes. Sé que tengo congestión mamaria, pero ¿qué puedo hacer para solucionarlo? Mi bebé no come mucho y yo sigo ofreciéndole amamantar, pero él solo come por unos minutos. Tengo un pezón protector para ayudarlo a prenderse y eso me ayuda, pero me gustaría sentirme mejor y deshacerme del dolor. Intenté exprimirme, pero solo conseguí un máximo de 1/2 onza a 1 onza. Tomo duchas calientes y nada está ayudando. No puedo dormir porque es muy doloroso cuando intento acostarme. Cualquier ayuda sería muy apreciada.

-Jenny C., Australia

R: Hola Jenny, para eliminar el dolor, prueba tomar 2 cápsulas de SerraEnzyme 80,000 IU 3 veces al día, 30 minutos antes de comer. También se ha demostrado que es muy útil para las madres que amamantan, utilizar HealthPoint para tratar la congestión mamaria. Consulta nuestro Plan de Salud.
