    Thrush

    Advertisements
    Definetly have it. Both of us.

    Carters been fussing while nursing big time, and my boobs have been so sore and painful (they never were before). My nipples hurt and Ive got shooting pains through my boobs. Today he was crying and when he opened his mouth I saw white patches all over his gums. I looked up the symptoms of thrush and hes got every single one. He has a doctors appt tommorow.

    I know you CAN nurse through thrush, but this is so painful. I refuse to stop breastfeeding now, I dont want him on formula, but this really freaking hurts. Nevermind the fact that he has been fussing while nursing and he pulls my nipple all over the place and is even chomping down on them. OUCH!

    Has anyone nursed through this? Howd you do it without it hurting so bad? I know they have antibiotics for it, how long did it take for them to kick in?

    How long did it take to clear up in your baby?

    Any advice would be great

    A friend of mine and her baby just had it and it took about a week to clear up. She pumped through it because she said it wasn't as painful as the baby nursing. I hope you can get rid of it soon!

    Ive tried pumping but I can only get about 2-3 ounces a day. I have a hospital grade pump too. Right now Im pumping and nursing, so I can give myself a little break, but the amount I get a day only holds him off for about an hour. Im gradually getting more every time I pump, so hopefully I get enough for a whole feeding soon.

    A week isnt bad though, I can push through this for a week

    I don't know if this will work...but I mean, thrush is yeast - and they say to try yogurt in your vajay-jay if you've got it - maybe it would work on your nipples?

    I mean.. it's worth a shot, even if it doesn't work!

    When you go into the Dr. they should give you some purple stuff to swab all over his mouth and all over your nipples. Be sure to disinfect all of his binkies and anything else he puts in his mouth.

    My son had thrush around 2 months old but I didn't know it. Once I found out it was nearly gone and I never experienced any pain because of it so I have no advice in that area, sorry.

    My sister got this in just one breast. She was MISERABLE but with the meds it only lasted a few days thank goodness.
