  • Yes, and it is normal. I used a little lanolin on them each day to help.

  • yes its normal just like the previous post said. i don't remember what causes it, i would assume its the whole your breasts preparing to make milk etc....i just used a thick lotion on my chest and was fine. (and i had some in my purse so when i was out and about if they started to itch i could go to the bathroom otherwise i was walking around with my arms crossed over my chest trying to scratch in a non-obvious way, def not fun or cute)
