  • I kind of went through the same thing. I just smelled bad...I don't know if it was a BO smell but I do remember being kind of stinky. Its probably just a hormonal thing.

  • OP here, I think your right about just being a stinky thing, I can put deodorant on 5 times a day and still me stinky. I hate it, I have never been the smelly one and now I feel nasty.

  • Hormonal... I think it helps your baby bond to you. Just think of it as yet another gift to your little nursling. If I remember correctly, it doesn't last that long. Maybe a few months? I think it goes away around the time you stop having to wear those awful nursing pads all the time.
