Breastfeeding & Cocoa Butter Creme

I'm 39 weeks pregnant and should be having my DS any time now. I bought Cocoa Butter Creme to help with dry skin/stretch marks. My question is after DS is born should I avoid putting it on my breasts? It says keep out of reach of children. I put it on my breasts to avoid stretch marks there and just to keep my skin hydrated. But am worried it will be bad for the baby?

  • You can still use it... just not on the nipples. Alternately you can use Lansinoh.

  • As long as it is not on the nipples where the child will be suckling it is fine, but breastmilk itself is great just express a little after done nursing and rub it in also Lansinoh or other nipple cream is great for stretch marks too.

  • I would say keep using it, but not on nipples.

    I've used Vitamin E oil with both pregnancies and have NO stretchmarks what so ever. Perhaps if you are worried about the cocoa butter lotion, you could use vitamin E oil?
    (It's like $5 for a little tiny bottle, but the bottles last me about 3 months!)

    Good luck!

  • I have Vit E oil but its a bit oily for me. I'll just avoid using it on my nipples. I have pure lanolin for sore nipples anyway.
