I would strongly encourage you to at least offer your first breast milk - the colostrum - for the first few days because it is so rich in antibodies and good things for your baby.

Don't do anything, absolutely nothing. Don't touch your breasts or nipples and wear the best fitting bra you can to minimise the discomfort.

Do women have to use a breast pump to nurse a baby?

A breast pump extracts milk from the breast, through the nipple, by stimulating milk production. The milk is collected in a container through a funnel placed on the breast around the nipple. There are many types and brands in the market, and mothers can choose between an electric and a manual pump.Why would a mother need to use a breast pump?As the name suggests, position the infant so that their head rests in the twist of the mother's elbow or the arm as she will breastfeed, with the hand on that side supporting the remaining of the body. Cup the breast with the other hand, putting the thumb above nipple and areola at the spot where the infant's nose contacts the chest. The nipple ought to be at the place where the infant's jawline will reach the breast. Softly compress the breast with the goal that the areola focuses marginally toward the infant's nose. The baby is now prepared to latch.

You got unbalanced lactation your other breast has more while the other seems nothing already what should you do?

Resist the urge to pump more or feed your baby more from the full side. This will only make it produce more. Try to alternate which breast you start with every time you feed your baby. Your baby will automatically take more from the breast that you offer him/her first. You need to encourage the more empty breast to produce as much as the other. Eventually, your breasts will produce the same amount and it will be just what your baby needs. It may take a few days for them to balance out, but try to be patient.
