Have you got a pump? You need to express a bit of milk, gradually reducing the amount so your supply reduces otherwise you risk getting an infection. If you haven't got a pump try hand expressing in the shower.

Express just enough to take the edge off and gradually reduce the amount each time you express. The Kelly mom website has some advice on it.
