She must breastfeed as much as possible.

Use warm compresses just before feedings or a warm shower or warm cloth on breast before nursing. Use a cold compress between feedings to relieve pain.

If she has a fever or flu symptoms, its best to get to the doctor, for treatment of mastitis. Please make sure it is a "breastfeeding friendly" doctor.

She must eat healthy, sleep and rest.

Lots of skin to skin contact with baby as well as nursing as much as possible is best to treat engorgement.
