FML. No wonder she's been fartin. I gotta go to walgreens tomorrow and get some lotramin or something. It's Lotramin AF right? Do I wash before I feed her or what? I'm taking 2 doses of probiotics and a capsule of garlic.

What should I do for DD?

I highly recommend Gentian Violet for the both of you. put a little on a qtip, paint her mouth with it. Let her nurse. It will stain her mouth purple & your nipples too (and anything else it touches). but once a day for 5 days is soooo much easier!

My pediatrician gave us a prescription when DS had thrush.  I applied it to his mouth and my nipples.  It worked great.

Yes, the lotrimin needs to be washed off before nursing. The gentian violet would be easier since you do not wash it off and it treats both you and the baby at the same time.

that is called Nystatin and since it contains sugar in most cases, especially reoccuring or extreme infections it doesn't help and can even make it worse. I'm glad it worked for you. We tried 3 different rounds of it and it never worked. the Gentian Violet helped us the 1st time within the first 2 days it was better!
