    Itchy Boobs

    Advertisements
    Yes, my boobs have the mad itch. On the inside though. Not the nipple, not the areola, not the skin stretching, the insides of my boobs itch. I'm thinking its because of how much she eats and maybe my supply is trying to catch up?

    K is EBF and we have had NO problems with latching or nursing at all, she's not extra fussy, no signs of thrush, nothing else, just this itch, It started yesterday, is still there today.

    So, why do my boobs itch? Ready, set, diagnose!!!

    Mine were like that for a week-ish and then it never came back. I used to put the gel cool pads in my bra if i was going out of the house because the cold helped and I wouldn't be scratching in public

    I have no real answer. But my mom used to tell me that when my boobs itched it meant they were growing

    Hm, let down tends to trigger mine but it doesn't only last as long as I am feeding. Maybe it's a side effect of milk production for you?

    Let down causes me to itch really bad. I let down even when she isn't eating. I have noticed the more full I am the itchier I am. I have no idea why though

    It stopped for the most part. I wonder if my supply was just increasing since she just came off of a serious binge-eating last 3 or 4 days. Seriously, she's like a parasite attached to my tits. I love her, but my body is killing me from constantly being immobile. Oh well, this is just a phase, we'll push right on through it. Keep on keepin on.
