I am nursing an almost 11 month old who is now waking up all night long as of the last few weeks or so. he used to sleep through the night. But I have noticed ( and last night it was sooooo bad) that my nipples are sooo sore.
I inspected them in the shower today adn they are bright red. I can pretty much rule out pregnancy and my supply seems to be fine. Can it be thrush? Ds doesn't appear to have any of the symptoms. He had it when he was born ( antibiotics from c-sect) so I know what it looks like.
If it is, is there something I can do without gettignn a prescription? I still have some of the Nysatin we swabbed his mouth with from before. I never got it then though. Could it be my breasts getting used to "more action: Before we nursed probably 4-5 times a 24 hour period. Now its more close to 8 thanks to his night wakings.
I greatly appreciate the advice and help as I am in a lot of pain and dont want to stop bfing......but its killing me. and oh, I dont have a dr. right now cuz of insurance problems!
