Managing thrush- late in PG w 2.5 yo nursling???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I noticed a stabbing pain in my nipples yesterday and started Dr. Jay Gordon's GSE thrush treatment protocol today. My DD is 2.5 yo, and is nursing only twice a day (probably bc I'm 36 weeks PG). Her nursing sessions are very brief. I was considering swabbing her mouth for a few days w the GSE solution, as well as spraying her bottom with it. How many days should I keep this up? How frequently should I swab?

I am so prone to thrush while pregnant for whatever reason. I imagine it's a real pain with two nurslings. I'd like to nip this in the bud ASAP. Anyone BTDT?

I have no answers for you but I am hoping to see some of the suggestions as my 10 month old and I seem to have Thrush again but he barely has any symptoms from what i can tell although my nipples are sometimes on FIRE. So hopefully bumping this up will get us some suggestions!

Thanks. Thrush is a cruel mistress!

Ok I just wanted to post an update. I did Dr. Gordon's treatment protocol for one week, and it seems to have helped. My pain is completely diminished. I think I will continue w the protocol until I give birth.
