Alrighty, now that I’ve got my target audience with me, let’s get personal. Too personal? Nah, I don’t think so. Breastfeeding has a way of knocking a few rungs from the modesty ladder.
Did you know that you can relieve those sore, lumpy, swollen nursing breasts with green cabbage leaves? I didn’t either, until a kind Tica friend offered the advice. Skeptical? You BET! I checked around online and found some supporters, and figured I had nothing to lose.
Green Cabbage Leaves Relieve Breast Engorgement Naturally!
How to Use It:
If your breasts are particularly tender and full, purchase a green cabbage and chill it in the fridge. When it’s cool, pluck off two leaves similar in size to your breasts. Insert each chilled leaf into your bra, directly covering each breast and wait approximately 30 minutes to an hour for relief.
Green cabbage leaves possess natural chemicals which work to dry up milk production, therefore reducing breast engorgement and alleviating the soreness that accompanies the first weeks of breastfeeding.
I’m no scientist, so you’ll have to look elsewhere for the bio-speak explanation of why it works. All I know is that it really does work, but don’t just take my word for it. Try it for yourself!
