Ok, my son is 2 weeks this Thursday and I had him emergency c-section and we were both placed on antibiotics.... After my milk came in I started getting the shooting nipple pain (had yeast problems a few times w my three year old) then I got mastitis.... Placed on an antibiotic for the mastitis, and taking diflucan for the yeast inf as well as probiotics. This past sat my son started getting thrush and the next day he had a yeast diaper rash. He is taking nystatin for his thrush and I'm putting lotrimin on his bottom. The mastitis and thrush have def improved. Nipples are better but not completely. Does anyone know of anything else I can use for his bottom?? I change him very frequently and dry it off and then place the lotrimin but it hasn't improved much..... Anyone else have this problem before? Any tips in general would be helpful. I nursed my first son for 19 mints and am not giving up, it would take a lot for me to do that!! We go back to the pediatrician Thursday and I can't drive so I just wanted to get some advice. Thanks ladies!!
