It's probably thrush if there are both symptoms. Get some genetian violet and grapeseed extract. Use the GV before nursing to treat you and baby. Not sure about the diaper rash, we've never dealt with those. Oh and wash your bras and his pants/stuff with vinegar. And a good probitoic for you and him wouldn't hurt, either.

Is it grapeseed or grapefruit seed? Where can I get GV?

I agree with pp, its probably yeast. Also take some probiotics, and avoid refined sugar for a few days.

It will clear up soon.

Grapeseed extract.

You can get it anywhere really. I got mine from Whole foods.

This might sound weird BUT

hear me out. Garlic.

Put a clove in your vagina overnight. It WILL help, and no side effects at all. I do it everytime.

If it is yeast, you can use Clotrimazole (Generic for Lotrimin) on the baby.. it is gentle enough to be safe.. DON'T use Lamisil... it's too strong!

grapeseed- when ds was a newbie he had thrush that lasted forever. The only thing that worked for us. Was me taking 2 grapeseed tablets 2x a day and then probiotics were 2 tablets 3x a day and then GV at night 2x a week. The GV we got on amazon, but I think you can find it at like Walgreens or other pharmacies. You might have to ask for it, though. Get the 1% and paint your nips, let baby nurse. That's how I found it best to treat both.

That's what I used ^^ and it worked great I'm sure the grape fruit one would work too. Its just an antioxidant.
