Your opinions would help!<br><br>
(also posting this in bfing forum)<br><br>
I'll try to be brief:<br><br>
DD only nurses from one breast (right).<br><br>
Yeast infection on nipple flared up BIG TIME w/ pregnancy (i'm 3.5 mos). One one the MOST PAINFUL things I've ever experienced.<br><br>
Started nursing occasionally on dry left side (with much encouragement.)<br><br>
Yeast on right seems to be subsiding, areola and surrounding skin is healing.<br><br>
BUT her latch is still SO PAINFUL on the yeasty right side and I'm starting to wonder if it could be due to pregnancy. ??<br><br>
The thing that confuses me is that she is occasionally nursing on the left, dry, non-yeast side and there is no pain. Would that be because there's no yeast, or no milk?<br><br>
Imput will help be figure out how to best continue my treatment.<br><br>
TIA!

Well, I'm 25 weeks, and for the last 6 weeks or so my nipples have been SO painful that I can't even let him latch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. I think it's pretty common to have this--hormone adjustments, yk?--and I suspect has something to do with the drying up of supply.<br><br>
Maybe a combination of the two?
