My Nursing Cat Has One Very Swollen Breast

My cat had kittens and they are 4 weeks old today and still actively nursing. They all have teeth and the mother cats nipples have been looking sore. She sometimes cries when they nurse and today we noticed that one (only one) of her bottom breasts is more than twice the size of the rest (not just the nipple, the entire thing) the breast itself isn't overly red or hot or anything (its the normal pink color) but its quite hard and VERY large. Also, the nipple has sores on it that almost look bloody. I can't take her to the vet today because its close so does anyone have any advice on what to do to help ?
