    Has anyone got any tips or advice on lumpy breasts? I've recently stopped breastfeeding, and feel i still have quite a bit of milk, my breasts are so sore and lumpy...only on one breast! I have tried trying to express a little but as soon as i start nothing happens.
    Also now I have stopped breast feeding I have noticed that one is like a melon the other an apple :rotfl:
    I hope my right one shrinks a bit :oops:

    Hi Twinkletoesnw,

    First of all lots of :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: as I know how much it hurts and how uncomfortable it is because I've been through that and still am. I know the most common advice is to massage them and put hot water flannels on them but massaging was impossible for me as it hurt loads (I couldn't even touch them let alone massaging them!) and hot flannels didn't seem to work (at least for me they didn't). Since you've stopped breastfeeding, I would suggest you pump a bit as it had helped me before (Now whenever I get a lump it goes away after a couple of feeds but there was a period when I was exclusively expressing and that was working equally well). I find that if you take some anti-inflammatories - try Nurofen express (that's the one I take) - it will go away sooner and will possibly make you feel more comfortable.

    I hope it will go away soon for you
    :hug:
