9.) Engorgement – hot compresses, hot showers, hot baths will all help. Immediately after, try to feed baby, hand express, or use a pump to give your self some relief.
10.) Damaged nipples. First make sure baby is latching on correctly. Use a nipple shield to help nipples to heal; there are also breast pads with medicine that will help. Also, let your “girls” breath. I spent the first few weeks after my daughter was born completely topless. Other than creating puddles of milk in various places around the house, it was very convenient.
11.) Invest in a good breast pump -- especially if you plan on continuing to nurse after going back to work.
12.) Invetigate your options for pumping at work. Check to see if your work offers a mother's room for breastfeeding mom's. If not, a bathroom or locker room will work, although they're definitely not as private.
