What is the stuff on my nipples?

I am almost 16 weeks and I am getting this flaky/weird white dryness on my nips. I have to almost pick it out to get it off...what is it?

  • Could be dry skin or you could be leaking out small amounts of colostrum. Nothing to worry about. If it's bothering you, put some lanolin on them.
