nipple itch

okay so this sounds funny but my nipples tend to itch when nursing or pumping if it's a longer than normal session, i'd say after 20 minutes or so. is that normal?

Re: nipple itch

Do you have any burning or pain.

I would say not normal and could be a sign of thrush, but do you have any other symptoms? Is this happening at other times?

Happened to me. Used to drive me nuts. I wondered if she was licking me ?? Sometime I'd have to take her off to scratch. Lanolin helped a bit.

This has happened to me also, with both my kids. I've wondered about yeast. But it happens when everything seems to be fine. Nice to know I'm not alone! I swear I have the most sensitive nipples ever. If something can happen with them, it will happen to me!
