    Hi shalusaini,

    That pain is due to more secretion of milk.
    The pain will reduce gradually. Dont worry. I have also undergone such pains, but vanishes within few days. Be :cool2:. To stop more secretion of milk here in south India the mother's diet itself will be plain like rice and rasam, idlis with little chutney, etc., any food which is not very rich for a day or two, then we proceed with normal diet.
    you can also have some more suggestions from other friends in IL.

    Cheers
    padma

    Hello,
    To ease out the pain, stand under shower and squeeze out the milk.
    Slowly it would get better.
