Crusty nipples

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Pennie is days away from delivery (I think, lol!). The past several days her nipples have gotten crusty and are very tender. Does this mean something? And, is there anything I can do to ease her?

Here is a pic taken yesterday.

if its white crust it should be milk leaking and that means she will have the kittens any day now. just whipe it off with warm water.

Use a little vegetable oil on the nipples, It will soften them and encourage her to lick them to help too

I'll do that vegetable oil trick, if she'll let me get anywhere close. I know we're close, but I'm tempering my enthusiasm, waiting for her to act different (licking herself constantly, quit eating, meowing loudly). Thanks for your help!
