I think you're supposed to express enough off enough to feel comfortable but not so much that you're stimulating production much.

Warm bath, flannel, hand express as much as you can stand, and savoy cabbage leaves down your bra. If it does get infected, you'll get a red patch, and feel pretty rubbish.

Good luck

I found tying a scarf tightly around my boobs really helped with this. Was recommended by my gp and it worked. You can also take paracetamol if uncomfy but if you develop a high temp or feel unwell then see your gp.
