Well, thanks to all who helped me get out of my denial about the thrush. I'm treating it now with all-purpose-nipple-ointment (apno). The baby is getting nystatin, though I've been warned it doesn't always work. I have all the home remedies, too, except for gentian violet, which is difficult to get here. Already I'm experiencing improvement.
Okay, another question. I've been pumping and freezing in preparation for going to work in a week and a half. My dh is encouraging me to go out of the house and let him give a bottle of EBM. Now that I have the yeast, I really shouldn't freeze the milk anyway, because I'd just have to boil it. I went out Sunday to teach, ds had a bottle of EBM, I returned and pumped and nursed on demand. Then I went out yesterday to the gym, and returned and didn't get to pump.
If I don't pump once for each time he has a bottle of my milk during the day--I'm going to loose supply, am I right? So I have to make sure I pump at least once if he's eating pumped milk, even though I'm nursing with him on demand the rest of the day? Help.
