lorchick Do you know how hard it is to photograph the inside of a mouth that is determined to excitedly nom your fingers? #thrush 2w

breeezy_bee Lol so the purple mouth is this medicine called #gentianViolet. For the moms who would rather use more natural meds, this is the route to go for thrush! She has a purple booty too lol messy and a hassle, but works! 3w

three___c My little blueberry! Oral Thrush is no joke for a breastfeeding mommy! This crap sucks! But she's the happiest little baby ever! #gentianviolet #smileyface #happygirl 1mon
  •   three___c @nikkilich oh daaaaamn that was a novel lol sorry 1mon
  •   nikkilich Wow that's amazing. Surprised I've never heard of it! That sounds soooo painful tho! I'm sorry you and your baby are going through that. But so glad you found a medicine. Thanks a bunch for that elaborate explanation. 1mon
  •   if_the_tiara_fits I'm in the same boat. But I put vaseline over and around her lips chin and cheeks before I feed her. Then after the feed I wipe it away with baby wipes. It only stays her lips but not the rest of her face. 4w
  •   three___c @if_the_tiara_fits it worked on her but not on me :( I start on Diflucan on Monday! 4w
  •   if_the_tiara_fits @three___c thrush is horrible. My little one got it because I was on antibiotics after her birth. She started a round of nystatin. Unfortunately she gave it back to me so now we are doing nystatin for her, gentile violet for me and her and Newman's nipple cream. 4w
  •   three___c She and I were both on antibiotics for severe sinusitis. We have horrible sinus problems! And I started noticing white patchy bubbles in between her pointer and middle finger because she sucks on the same two fingers after she nurses. Then my breasts started getting really sore and I started getting sharp shooting pains while she nursed. It's been an awful two weeks lol and she nurses every 1.5-2 hours. I hold my breath so much during our nursing sessions because the pain is so bad. We tried the gentian violet and it cleared it up in between her fingers and the side of her inner cheek. But it didn't work on me. So she'll start on nystatin on Monday and I'll start on Diflucan. Till then, I'm loading up on Lotrimin to heal the cracks that have gotten really deep :( 4w
  •   if_the_tiara_fits @three___c ask for Newman cream (prescription) it has antibiotics antifungal and anti inflammatory properties to it. Dr jack Newman recommends it when dealing with thrush. I noticed the white tongue on Mia and like you the pain my right side has healed but left is still tender and sometimes I feel like not nursing on that side. I hope you and little one heal up quickly :) 4w
