Bfing/hormones/pregnancy mask spots?

DD is now 13 months and still bfing. I am still getting these dark splotches on my face (under my eyes but mostly my upper lip - looks like a five o clock shadow) . What the heck is it from? Is the hormones from bfing? Man - the sun makes it worse! What can I do for it? Please tell me I am not the only one - I am starting to get self-conscious.

I had it with both girls, sorry that yours is still happening though. Probably hormones, that is a great link b/c I always forget the name.

Yes, it is due to the hormones. . . you HAVE to wear SPF 30 at least to minimize sun damage because it makes it so much more apparent. It should slowly get better after your done bf'ing.
