I have breast engorgement! Also, my 14weeks old baby's mouth is hot. He is on EBF
If you think a baby has temperature, you must measure FIRST with a thermometer...NORMAL TEMP IS 36.5 - 37.4......NO MATTER WHAT YOU FEEL. If your thermometer reads above 37.5 then give paracetamol and see a doctor for a proper evaluation to know the cause of the fever. There are so many causes of fever.

Please help me out, I'm trying to wean my baby off breastfeeding and my breast is now engorged. What do I do?
Sorry dear, you can use moist heat on the breasts for a few minutes, or take a brief hot shower before breastfeeding. This may help the milk begin to flow. Note: Use of heat for extended periods of time (over 5 minutes) may make swelling worse. Use cold compresses for 10 minutes after feedings to reduce swelling. If things don't get better, See your lactation expert/consultant
