  • Your skin is probably stretching. I use cocoa butter. Best wishes!

  • Maybe Dr.Scholl's itch relief lotion. (Yellow bottle) Doesn't smell the best, but, it helps with itch.

  • I have been having this issue with only one side, and it's been driving me insane. My ob recommended Cortaid, it helps and you can find it at walgreens.

  • Drink lots of water; at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Don't use soap on your breasts; at this point they are self-cleaning
    Put coconut oil on them; it is great to keep around during breastfeeding, too; you won't have to wash it off when you nurse.

    Congratulations on your new family member!!
