I'm 25 weeks pg and my boobs have started leaking quite a bit. I remember this from first time around, but I don't remember them being so itchy as a result. It's driving me insane and I obviously I can't scratch my nips in public. Breast pads stop the embarrassing patches but not the itching.
What's really annoying is that I know that it's no indicator of how easily I'll bf !
I'm 22 weeks and have had the same, leakage & itch. I found that Clarins moisture rich lotion worked... it didn't irritate them and gave them good moisture and stopped the itch. The leaking is driving me crazy tho!
Thanks for the replies (sorry I've been on holiday). Gave in and bought breast pads in the end, this is going to cost me a fortune! Might give the nettle tea a go as the only cure I've found so far is to 'milk' them a little , which is quite unpleasant.
