    Haha well I guess maybe it was a good thing I posted if several women are saying they thought they were the only one!

    Like I said, I knew it wasn't BAD or anything like that, at worst just a reaction maybe that I was having while getting regulated (I get the weirdest illnesses sometimes), its just that sometimes the feeling is soo horrible that I just sit here begging my LO to hurry up (even though he has NO IDEA what those words even mean yet)

    It sounds like this is very unpleasant for you. BFing ideally should be a good experience for both baby and mom. Maybe a call to your local LLL leader could help. I think if it's only happening when your LO is almost finished on one breast, maybe you could switch when you start getting that feeling. I've never felt itchy before, and I also didn't feel my let-downs for a few months. I guess every woman is different.

    me too. when i letdown, it would itch soo bad.. not my my aerola but just the rest of my breast would. once the milk slowed down it didnt itch anylonger.. and now i dont even feel my let downs afer nursing for 9 monhts now.
