I nurse my son as much as I can, but he's not a good latcher, so most of what he gets is expressed breastmilk in a bottle. He has had thrush for 10 days and I also have the yeast infection in my breasts. Really bad too, we both have nystatin and his pediatrician said I can keep nursing as ling as I apply the medicine after each feeding. Well my question is this infection doesn't seem to want to go away, so I'm wondering if it would be more beneficial to just pump and try putting him to breast in a few days? I've also noticed my milk supply has greatly diminished and I'm wondering if the yeast infection caused it?? Also he hasbeen really gassy and it doesn't seem to matter what I eat, tried gas drops and gripe water and it doesn't seem to he helping, any thoughts? Suggestions?
