Hello!<br>
I am BFing a 15-month-old. About two weeks ago my right nipple started hurting. THe pain hasn't gone away - it hurts when he nurses or I touch the nipple. It has unusual pink color too. I haven't noticed any cracks (or maybe I don't know what exactly to look for). What might it be? Candida? DS likes to nurses ALL the time, so it's pretty challenging now that it sores. Please help!

Yeah, I would guess thrush. For a fast fix I use vinegar/water wipes on my nipples after every nursing session. I would also start you and your baby on probiotics asap. Check out kellymom or search for threads here for more info. Good luck!

Yes, I know I have a lot of it. How can I get rid of it if I nurse? All candida cleanses are not for nursing mothers. My baby and me hae been taking probiotics for a long time now. I would assume this means my baby definetely has candida, too. Whta can I do about it?

also, i hae been feeling sooooo tired lately, I can brely wake up and move. If it wasn't for my little one, I'd stay in bed all day. I am thinking it might be candida, too, causing all tis fatigue. Help! I am soo scared...I want my energy back and afraid my baby has candida; his face looks puffy all the time.
