You should see your doctor as they can prescribe special anti persperants etc and also check you over for any health problems. I assume you are showering every day etc? (sorry to be rude but it is easy to slip when you are busy with young children, believe me I know!).

i had this too...spoke to aother two friends who had babies same time as me, and they had it too!

we put it down to hormones or something!!!

it passed not to long ago, and my baby was two last week....

try changing your deoderant, it may help, and obviously wash yourself and your clothes regularly.

try not to worry....i'm sure its more noticable to you than it is to others....
