Did you know that many women around the world use a surprising and effective method?
Yes, 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 relieving the pain and stress caused by wearing uncomfortable bras.
How to use cabbage leaves?
First, 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, take a few leaves from the inside for use. Once you have the leaves, it is very important to wash them in cold water. This will ensure that they are clean and free of dirt, pesticides and residue.
After that, the stem of the leaves should be cut so that it fits properly in the breasts without covering the nipples. Next, place the clean, cold cabbage leaves on the breasts. Wrap the leaves around the breasts, always leaving the nipples exposed.
This will help keep the skin around the nipples dry and intact. Leave the leaves in place for about 20 minutes or until they warm up. Then remove and reapply if necessary.
Remember, if you are still breastfeeding and want 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.
