    I would call you MW. I don't think your nipples should be cracking. When you say red hot, can you explain a bit more. Do you mean they are heat hot or you have red splotches?

    Are you nipples actually cracking and bleeding? As you pregnancy progresses little fissures will form as the nipples changes. They look like cracks.

    It could be from growth. My breasts didn't grow much with my first pregnancy but has with this one. Maybe thats why they are itchy?

    i havn't had any nipple issues so far but my boobs DO get red and hot to the touch. This is usually at the end of my day when I get out of my clothes i notice they are red, mostly at the bottoms of them like under the nipples and lower and they are very warm feeling. But no pain or anything. It's been like that for quite a while. I'm seeing my Dr. on Monday also so I'm going to mention it as well.

    Yeah they are proper cracking I know I doesn't sound the best but they go like a bit crusty and they weep a bit sorry if it sound yuk! They are sort of what they were like when I was trying to breast feed my first and she was latching on correctly..

    Mind u I have bought some camomile cream today and they are feeling soothed lOl

    Mine do the same but it is just tiny amounts of colostrum.

    A lanolin creme is really good too.
