Engorged & Stressed About It

Both my breasts have been engorged for the past two days and I don't know why or how to get rid of it. I thought it would have subsided by now. So now I'm just worried and a little bit stressed. Any help welcome.

How old is your LO? You can try seeing if baby will feed more often. If baby falls asleep at the breast a lot you can try keeping her/him awake to eat more by messing with his/her feet. If it's super painful you can try triggering a let down by holding baby skin to skin and just letting it leak out. If you pump you might make your body think it needs to keep making that much milk.

I've just seen your post on another board about labour, are you still pregnant? If you are how far along are you? I didn't get engorged until 2-3 days after DD was born when the milk came in. Are you leaking at all?
