Frequent nursing 10 to 15minutes on each breast every 2 hours. Warm compress the breast before breastfeeding. Hand expression can help to initiate let down reflex. Drink lots of fluid and avoid coffee and sodas. Ice packs for 20 minutes between feeding to reduce the swelling of the breast. Check if the baby has 6-8 wet diapers in 24 hours
