I am nursing little man and (tmi) the top of my breast started itching really bad. Not thinking... I scratched and made six stretch marks. I can't believe I did that! Sleep deprivation. Anyone know any good lotion or home remedy?

You can get stretch marks from scratching tight skin (sudden weight gain, pregnancy...etc) Yeah cocoa butter has a weird texture to me.

I think someone told me lemon juice before? But I'm not sure if that's right.

it happens. just put lotion on them (keep it away from the nipples though, since you're breastfeeding)
