I've been using a Burt's Bees mommy body oil for moisture. It feels wonderful! Maybe right after a shower/bath try an oil since lotion isn't helping too much? And try to increase your water intake. I know I'm not drinking quite enough water, but I'm trying!! I read it's something like 13 glasses a day for breastfeeding...
Yes & yes. Burt's Bees is the best and I easily consume 16 glasses of water a day (I also have hypothyroid so I need more water to begin with ontop of nursing).
I get so itchy at night though, so I also have aveeno lotion next to my bed.
