Answer: Dear new mommy, I can understand what you are going through. First few months of breastfeesing can be very troubling for every mother. There is a lot of milk secretion, but your baby is not too hungry to drink all of it. Whenever your breast becomes full and hard, it can be very painful. You can get immediate relief by pouring bearable hot water on your breast and extracting the milk out by pressing around the nipples. You may use a breast pump to extract the milk at regular intervals. Feed the baby regularly at the same time intervals everyday, so that your body adjusts itself to a fixed schedule and produces milk accordingly.
