I would put them in my bra. It helps dry up your supply and the cold helps with the pain. It only took about 2-3 days and then the deflated back to a somewhat normal state. You smell like cabbage soup but I swear it works like a miracle! Good luck!!
This got me very upset. They don't "allow"??? What if a woman really doesn't want to breastfeed? They truly force her to do something with her body against her will?! Everywhere I know, that's a crime. I hope you mean that they just put on a lot of pressure but do listen if a woman says, "no" ?

Sorry you went through that!
