Most mothers experience breast fullness at one time or another as their bodies readjust to the baby’s changing demands for breastmilk. This may make the breast to ache at time and cause some discomfort.
Breast engorgement occurs if you are not able to breastfeed your baby frequently and thoroughly enough to empty the breast in the first few days after birth. However some women still experience engorgement no matter how frequently they feed. Obstructed milk ducts can also cause you to be engorged. This can happen if you’ve had breast augmentation . The implants can take up so much room that there is little space left inside the breast for increased blood , lymph and milk. Wearing very tight bra can also result in obstructed ducts.
