Tuesday Tip: Engorgement

Posted on November 10, 2015 at 8:54 AM

Puma and I had the pleasure of attending the Club MomMe Family Fest in LA on Sunday.  What an amazing day connecting with people who serve families in the childbearing year! It was a full day, and we are sorry we didn't get to meet everyone on our list.

One of the people I did get to visit with was Dymphna Gruijters, IBCLC and exhibitor for Lansinoh. Every time I see her, I learn something new!  

This time,  she shared a simple tip that can help moms decide when/how to use their Thera-Pearl 3-in-1 Breast Therapy treatment packs.

COLD: Apply cold therapy packs when you are engorged. When a mama is engorged, there is so much water in the breast tissue that the milk ducts are constricted. Applying a cold therapy pack helps move the water and make space for the milk ducts so that the milk can flow.

HOT: The heat helps to relieve mastitis and plugged ducts, and my favorite part as a former pumping mom? It can help you pump more efficiently!! Apply the hot packs on the outside of the flange of your breast pump so the heat can encourage your milk flow.  Brilliant!

Just another reason to love Lansinoh. Thank you, Dymphna+Lansinoh, for coming out to support moms on Sunday, and for all that you have done to help promote breastfeeding.

Do you have a favorite Lansinoh product? Tell us about it!
