Hey ladies quick question I'm 23 weeks with my 2nd, I have the itchiest nipples it's insane!! Is this normal?? I don't demented having this with DS and also I seem to be having some clear fluid type stuff coming out of them?? Only a tiny bit but still isn't that to early for anything like that to happen??

My boobs started leaking about 20 weeks with dd2 but no itching sorry! Maybe the fluid is irritating your nipples?

The average for producing milk is 16 weeks, as your breast are undergoing a lot of changes I think the itching is normal smile

Mine itched like buggery at the same time as my ducts started making colostrum. They also felt like a wasp was chewing on them at times. Midwife said it was a mix of increased blood flow, milk production and stretched skin.

Hi OP! I ha this with first pregnancy, I came so close to taking a cheese grated to them they were so itchy- boots do a nipple cream that seemed to take the itch down a notch or too. Or cold compresses. It does improve smile
