Are cabbage leaves effective in managing breast engorgement due to breastfeeding?
Women report higher levels of satisfaction with cabbage leaves than either routine care or cold gel packs (with an extra 1 in 4 and 1 in 6 reporting satisfaction^ respectively). Cabbage leaves reduce pain (by ~1 point out of 10) and hardness (by ~0.4 points out of 6) associated with breast engorgement compared to usual care. Cabbage leaves likely do not need to be chilled.
