Do your armpits start to itch whilst you are breastfeeding?
I often experienced itchy armpits during breastfeeding. It was hard to itch them whilst baby was feeding:
Upon researching itchy armpits, I found several posts from women saying that they were also experiencing the same sensations, but no medical explanations. I have therefore made my own explanation:
I personally put it down to the production of milk and the functioning of the milk glands located near the armpits. As the milk supply is drawn out by baby, it needs to be replaced which was making me feel itchy under my arms. The itchiness mostly happened during and shortly after breastfeeding.
