Phew! It's been a while since I've had the time to post. (Even now I'm typing with two fingers while nursing!) We are settling in to life as a family of four. Love having DH home- he's a champ! Getting much less sleep than we need, but more than we had when Gabe was a bub! So, need to be grateful for that! Gideon is feeding well and giving us lots of windy Elvis-half smiles.
Brookie: Oh! I know exactly how excruciating thrush can be! I had recurrent breast thrush for THREE MONTHS with Gabe as a baby. And you would have found that the traditional treatments for damaged nipples actually make a thrush infection worse. I went through all the treatment options and eventually had to take some hardcore medication to kick it. This was the major fear for me with DS2: not labour but starting breastfeeding. I'm currently taking daily Inner Health Plus and Yakult to try to avoid it again. I really hope your situation gets sorted quickly.
