The skin over her neck, throat and down to her nipples goes all mottled red-and-white, sometimes starker or not, sometimes more or less widespread. Whatever happens it goes away usually by the time I've finished feeding her. I asked the doc, he wasn't worried as dd is utterly thriving. Just wondered if anyone here had any ideas what's going on there?

thanks

She's warmer because she's against you and this prompts the skin appearance changes. Stop worrying and enjoy her.

Sounds like a simple heat rash - DS gets it all the time, it has become less frequent as he has got older. It doesn't seem to bother him (itch etc) and HV, doctors etc haven't been remotely concerned.
