has anyone else had issues

Has anyone had Mastitis before? I did with my last daughter and had to do cream and antibiotics. She had to be on Nystatin after that b/c of thrush and then I had to put nystatin on my nipples so I wouldn't get it. Well she will be 2 next month and ever since then i still get that same feeling like the yeast in your breasts. Has anyone else have a problem like it or issues w/ your nipples. I can't stand it and the Dr say it is just the way my nipples are. It hurts and finding it to be disturbing.

  • I had mastitis twice; I was able to avoid antibiotics with hot compresses and massage.
    For the yeast/thrush, get a (refrigerated) probiotics powder. Sprinkle it on your nipples just before feeding. When Baby is finished, rub breast milk on your nipples, let them completely air dry, and sprinkle on more probiotics.
