Q:

I m using "MOM's & co" cocoa butter - shea butter anti itching cream for breasts.

but, my mom said don't use any creams without doc prescription, since it may affect the milk after the delivery. she is concerned like dat. after hearing i m worrying now. wat to do. shall i ask doc, or can i use it.. please help..



hi ammu i dont think any cream will hv an affect on milk production. but it might irritate baby. so while feeding u will need to wipe ur nipples clean for sure. if the fragrance is too strong then avoid after delivery

Sheeba Vijesh Sumira Bhatia pls help

i too agree with asha.  right now u can apply the same.  bt try n avoid after delivery.. 

external application of cream wnt effect bm..but before feedin make sure u clean ur breasts wit water so tat baby doesn ingest cream...tats all

agreed...u r using it externally so no worries...
