Am I the only one that will shower in the morning, and then was my boobs (or at least my nips) half way through the day and then again at night time. Ill do it more often if I am overly active and feel sweaty.


-I do it because I feel my boobs are my DS's bottle and I wouldn't let him use a dirty bottle why let him eat of a dirty nip.

Is that my germaphobe at its finest or do other moms do that too?

I did this in the beginning, but have lightened up a bit. I just shower once a day and leave it at that. Unless I do get really sweaty and nasty in that area, then definitely!

I never did....you have to be sure not to use soap on your nipples though  because it will dry out & strips all the natural(good for you& baby) oils on them.

I definitely rinse if I feel really sweaty but In all my years of breastfeeding I've never used soap on my nipples. :)
