Good Body Lotion?

Can you all suggest something for dry skin/nipples (tmi!). My skin is SUPER sensitive and the Palmers stuff I bought made my nipples super itchy, but I noticed my skin is a lot drier now. I was thinking of Burts Bee's but apparently the pregnancy butter stuff contains a bad ingredient and it gets bad reviews.

Re: Good Body Lotion?

  • Are you looking for something for your entire body or just nipples?  Aveeno makes a good lotion for sensitive skin.

  • I had the same problem with my nipples while I was pg... I put lanolin on them and it worked like a charm. If you are going to bf you will want it anyway.

    For lotion I used this stuff called Udderly Smooth. Target used to carry it but I can't seem to find it anymore. It isn't very expensive and doesn't smell which I really liked.

  • I would like something that can be used "all over" and that is thick enough to really help with any stretch marks. I got a free sample of some jergens pregnancy lotion, but I don't think it is "nipple safe".

  • I would use lanolin on my nipples. Lansinoh makes some, but I'm sure there are other companies too.

    I still use Jergen's on the rest of my body, but I mix it half/half with body cream (really thick stuff) from Bath & Body works.

  • This may be an obvious question, but why don't you just avoid the nipple area when applying your lotion and then get something specific for your nipples, like Lanolin.

  • If you're planning to BF, definitely go ahead and get in the habit of not putting anything else on your nipples other than lanolin.  Get the Lansinoh brand- it's the best.

    I really like Aveeno lotion.  That's what I used throughout my pregnancy.  I had really dry, itchy skin while I was pregnant.  :P

  • Mikey, that is what I have been doing. I was just wondering if there was something good as an all over cream that wouldn't irrate me. I think I will look into the Aveeno stuff. I never had this issue pre-pregnancy.

  • I really like Cetaphil cream. I use it all over in the winter when my skin is the most dry. I also like that I can use it on my face, where my confused skin gets both dry and zitty. I also like Curel.. GL

  • I have super sensitive skin too.  I used Mama Mio.  It's overpriced, but I really liked it.  After I ran out of two jars I switched to Tummy Honey Butter from BRU (because it was less expensive).  It was so greasy I quit using it regularly though.

  • I liked the Curel Pregnancy lotion while I was pregnant. But I don't think you are supposed to put regular lotion on your nipples. I would just stick with the Lanolin...but it might leave grease spots on your bras if you're not wearing breast pads.
