Thrush?

Posted by on Aug. 7, 2014 at 8:58 PM

I have a swollen cracked nipple. With lots of pain on both breasts while nursing. I've attributed babys lack of nursing at night and my pain to his teething a molar. Now I'm wondering do we both have thrush? How do i know for sure and what do I do?

You will also have to correct his latch every time it isn't right. Treat the teething pain 15-30 minutes before nursing. Hyland's homeopathic teething tablets, raw sweet onion rubbed on the gums, amber teething necklace and infant Tylenol or ibuprofen will work.

Look up thrush on kellymom.com. All the best remedies and procedures are listed. It wouldn't hurt to treat for thrush and see if it helps.
