I have been having such a hard time BF my DS for months now. Yesterday was the worse. I've posted many questions and received some wonderful and helpful advice from you MDC mamas. But when my DS refused the breast all day yesterday, I met with a lactation specialist at WIC and she wondered if I might have thrush. Went to the doctor today and I do. She perscribed treatment for both of us, but wasn't as helpful as I had hoped and seemed to really hurry our appointment.
First, I explained to the doctor that DS wasn't nursing and my concern about having thrush. Right of the bat she started writing a perscription for us. I asked what it was for, just an anti-fungal she said. She said not to nurse him until I was cured, but checked with another doctor when I made a fuss and then said she'd have to call me to let me know. She gave me no other instructions, no other information.
Do any of you MDC mamas have any other advice? I've heard of probiotics, but where can I buy that? Will my nursing problems be cured after treatment for thrush?
