The correct answer is to breastfeed the neonate at frequent intervals. Breast engorgement after birth occurs due to changes in hormone levels makes the breast to make lots of milk. The milk produced swelling, and the extra flow of blood to the breast cause engorgement in the breast. For less swelling and engorgement, it is important to feed the baby as often as possible.

Milk will flow easily, and there will be less swelling and engorgement. Nursing day and night is advised. Mums are advised to feed the newborn at least every 2 to 2 hours till the breast is less engorged. Over time, the breast will adjust to the newborn's appetite, and there would be less engorgement.

Breast-feeding the neonate at frequent intervals

Prevention of breast engorgement is key. The best technique is to empty the breast regularly with feeding. Engorgement is less likely when the mother and neonate are together, as in single room maternity care continuous rooming in, because nursing can be done conveniently to meet the neonates and mothers needs.
