Re: Neck gunk! Help!

Cleaning it every hour very well could be making it more irritated, I know it's kind of a double edged sword but I think maybe you need to not do it so often. Try a little coconut oil, and then make sure you have a burp cloth wrapped around her neck when she nurses to make sure nothing dribbles down (if she spits up a lot this obviously won't help this.) I would only clean a couple times/day at most (unless you specifically see milk drip down) and then as pp said make sure completely dry.

ETA: my first dd suffered terribly from this but it goes away as quickly as it showed up once they get a little length on them
