Nipple darkening
Hi everyone.
So I'm 28 weeks and on my first pregnancy. I've read books and forums and know about the area around the nipple is suppose to get darker. However, after childbirth is there anything I can use- like creams- that can lighten them back up again ? Or is this a permanent type of situation. ?

They will lighten again on their own in my experience.  It usually only lasts during pregnancy and nursing.

My husband hates it! I'm 15 weeks and they are starting to get darker. With my first they lightened up a couple months after I gave birth. It does go away!
