Breast engorgement after feeding/pumping

Hi mummies, any of you experience breast engorgement or blocked milk duct right after feeding or within 1.5 to 2hrs of feeding? Is it normal? Baby has been latching and I will express out if breasts are too full but still cannot avoid having these. :( Please share your solutions. Thanks!

Yes i felt that before and its was so painful. Even when i pump it does help so asked my confinement lady & she helped me to massage the area that was affected. She told me that the milk duct is blocked as there is too much milk. After she helped me i fed my bby will massaging my breast and it went away. Pumping helps but u have to massage it right after because the way your milk is pumped out is different when a baby is latching.
