My lovely 18 day old son is breastfeeding beautifully. However.....I am getting itchy stretch marks on one of my boobs that is driving me to distraction. I used bio oil on my belly while pregnant but I assume this is not safe to put on my boobs incase lo ingests it? any tips.....please (desperate emoticon)

thanks in advance

It's your boobs ramping up production dear. Take two paracetamol (seriously) and yes you can put bio oil on them - won't help particularly but any form of moisteriser will reduce the itchiness. I would suggest baby oil myself - much cheaper.

paracetomol taken and once lo has finished I shall be making use of the 60 gallons of baby oil I have!!
