I am tandeming with my dd who is 19 months and new dd who is 6 weeks today. It is going well so far, I tell dd A that baby needs milk first and then when baby is done she can have milk. She seems to really get it, if I just explain to her what and why. The only thing that has sucked is that the babe has thrush, and I got a slice in my nipple about 2.5 weeks ago. The nipple has heled but boy was it the most painful thing ever! I used gentian violet on the baby and it seemed to stop it, as well as probiotics for her and myself. I just noticed today that her mouth has got patches insid eit again! The older dd doesnt show any signs or symptoms of yeast though. This really sucks though! I am sure I need to treat all of us, as well as washing my clothes/bras with a vinegar rinse, which I have been doing, anyone else have any other suggestions?
I must say that I havent had problems with engormnent either , or leaking!!! Also I got mastitis in the breast with the cut on it but was able to get rid of it within about 48 hours. Any how thanks for this thread its nice to be able to share as I dont even know anyoine else who is breastfeeding right now.
