Like just overnight, my breasts got brown spots on them. It reminds me of people who get melasma. Anyone else have this and is it normal?

I have no experience with this, but I have read that this kind of occurrence is normal! It is, apparently, cause by hormones.

I got that with DS. I was showing my mom some rash or something I had and she saw it and FREAKED OUT haha!!! But it's very normal.

Mama of two... DS born at 35w5d (11/06) and DD : born full term 38w3d (5/09) on what would have been my dad's 64th birthday. Always missing my dad who died of oral cancer 3/11/09.

I read that brown spots and a darker areola is normal to help the baby find the nipple at birth.

You can have your midwife check it out at your next apt. but it sounds fine to me.
