    Omg the burning Fire of pain! Typed as Caleb is currently nursing from the worse side.

    We have a medicine for his mouth and my nipples, and then a cream for his diaper area. But the doctor warned us that it doesn't go away overnight. I wish it did. I'm so ready to enjoy nursing again. Right now it's just hard because it's so painful.
    Thankfully, it hasn't slowed him down. He's still nursing like a champ.

    Thrush sucks.

    Aww, Gina. That does suck.
    You do have a great excuse to walk around topless, though, to get some air to those babies.  :girl_devil:

    Hugs!!  We went through 2-3 rounds of it.  Gentian Violet is the only thing that seemed to help.  I hope it gets better fast!  Good to hear that he's still nursing so well!
