I think this is a weird question - but sometimes I get a whiff of me and I smell like breastmilk. Is this normal? Anyone else experience this? My dd is 3 months and I have noticed it on and off but someone recently commented on it and now I am self-consious.<br><br>
Any help of suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

I remember that too. I thought it smelled good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I think it had to do with leaking because I don't smell it anymore.

It's probably just leakage...do you wear pads in your bra to catch leaking? If so, make sure you change them a couple times a day, you may be a heavy leaker and don't even know it. Fresh breastmilk smells good, old breastmilk smells soured. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Maybe that's what it is - I have been wearing my breast pads for a few days and then changing them. Boy do I feel stupid!

I have it, too. But it's not just at the "business end" of the breast - it comes from all over that region! And to me, DS's poopy diapers smell the same way. I call it "Eau du barn."

I definitely smell like BM. One of the BF babies at DD's daycare LOVES me because I smell like his mama. And my DD loves his mama because she smells like BM too (and my DD hates most people).

I never noticed it this time, but did with my DD. It went away after she was a few months old. I knocked it up to the leaking thing too.
