‘Been trying a little experiment for the last 2 weeks, putting breast milk on one side of my stomach. I can’t believe the difference!’

“I have been trying a little experiment for the last 2 weeks.  I have putting breastmilk on one side of my stomach. I can’t believe the difference! For any moms out there breast feeding put a little on those tiger stripes.

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 3 weeks now…

My baby is now 2 months old. I noticed a big difference not just on coloring but also in depth of my stretch marks. I posted this after my mom convinced me too share with other moms. I cannot promise it will work 100% for everyone but it definitely helps.

A lot of people may think this is fake, but it honestly is not…. I am on day 6 of starting on other side of my tummy. They have gone from dark red to light red now. Starting to get light purple on edges. Like I said before it’s not just the lightning up that is amazing but also it helps with the depth if marks. I am truly just trying to inform other Moms. There’s is nothing wrong with stretch marks, but it is nice to know they can fade faster.

Update: Feb 11th – I am now on day 10 on my right side and day 24 on my left. I wasn’t sure how to show I haven’t edited softened/brightened/ or photoshopped. So, I put a sticky note on lol some people are saying that massage is what helped them. As a teenager I had stretch marks on my inner thighs. I rubbed them with beeswax/coconut oil/bio oil/aloe vera/ and various stretch mark creams.

They are still blue/purple after 8 years. Excited to try them next. Some woman are perfectly fine and confident over their stretch marks but a lot of women are not. So please do not judge either way it is a personal choice. Be kind to all!”
