Due to some VERY unforeseen circumstances, I was given antibiotics during labor. As a result, both ds and I have contracted thrush and it just keeps on going due to bfing. Anyone else had to deal and did you find any tried and true methods to rid yourselves of it? I have run out of ideas...acidophilus, exposing my breasts to air as much as possible, disposable breast pads, boiling bottle nipples...even antifungal meds. HELP!! Cat

WOW!! I was so excited when I came across this thread this morning!! I am Cat and my son Avery was born July 30. I think it was j that mentioned her extremely long birth...mine was quite similar and produced a blue moon baby! My actual due date was July 12 and I was followed by an OB as well as having a doula. I was not dilating for the life of me and of course the OB wanted to induce at two weeks. We declined, and my water broke four days after that and contractions...
