Any suggestions for treating the horrid itchy-ness of newly forming stretch marks on the breasts? I am mostly concerned with how bad they itch! I've been using the lanolin, but with mixed results. I am mostly concerned with using something that is safe during breastfeeding. Ideas, please?
Try not to take super hot showers and put lotion on before your skin is dry. You could also try olive oil, it's a little greasy but it helps.
As long as you skip the nipple and areola, I think almost any lotion would be okay. I really liked the Vaseline Intensive Care advanced healing (white bottle, blue top). Wal-mart has a knock off version for much less $ and works just as well.
