Breast Milk on Stretch Marks

Nursing Mamas Will 100% Steal This Mom's Brilliant Hack to Reduce the Appearance of Stretch Marks

Chantelle Clarke, a crafty mom with a 2-month-old daughter, discovered a hack that new moms who are nursing might want to try out. On Feb. 2, she shared how she's been rubbing breast milk on her stretch marks for the past two weeks on Facebook, and her results are seriously amazing.

"Been trying a little experiment for the last two weeks," she wrote. "Been putting breast milk on one side of my stomach. I can't believe the difference!! For any moms out there breastfeeding, put a little on those tiger stripes. For moms asking, I rub it into my tummy while nursing and lather it on so it's almost dripping off. I let it air dry and just pull my shirt over after. I put it on every time I nurse. Been doing it for about three weeks now. My baby is now 2 months old. I noticed a big difference not just on coloring but also in [the] depth of my stretch marks. I posted this after my mom convinced me to share with other moms. I cannot promise it will work 100 percent for everyone, but it definitely [helped me]."

Wow, breast milk is some seriously powerful stuff, right?!
