Do you know many women around the world are using a surprising and effective method?
Yeah, believe it or not, they are putting cabbage leaves on their breasts, and they have a good reason for it.
Cabbage leaves are used to reduce breast swelling and relieve the pain and discomfort caused by breastfeeding a baby. In addition, this method is also very helpful in soothing the pain and stress caused by wearing uncomfortable bras.
How to use cabbage leaves?
First of all you need to put the cabbage leaves in the refrigerator for 1 hour. When they are cool enough, it is necessary to peel off the outer layer of hours and throw it away.
Next, remove a couple of leaves from the inside for use. Once you have the leaves, it is very important to wash them in cold water. This way, we will make sure they are clean and free of dirt, pesticides and residues.
After that, the stem of the leaves should be cut to fit properly in the breasts without covering the nipples. Next, you need to place the cabbage leaves, clean and cold on the breasts. Wrap your breasts with the leaves, but always leaving the nipples exposed.
This will help to keep the skin around nipples dry and intact. Allow the leaves to remain on for about 20 minutes or until they become warm. After that, remove them; and if necessary, do it again.
Remember, if you’ re still breastfeeding and would like to use cabbage leaves to help reduce breast swelling and relieve breast engorgement, you should stop this treatment once you notice that you feel better and the inflammation has gone away.
