I am formula feeding and my milk just started to come in a couple days ago (today is day 8 PP, milk started coming in at day 5). I've been using cabbage leaves to dry it up and it seems to be slowly working, they aren't as hard but they are still bigger and more sensitive than normal.
I've noticed just in the last 24 hours or so that they seem to be really itchy, the nipple area especially. Anyone else have this problem? Is it the cabbage making it itchy or is that just how it is at this point with trying to dry up milk?
It's really irritating!
