Hey all, I need some help and some ideas! My LO is almost 11 weeks old. After she was born I had to have antibiotics, and then she went to hospital and had antibiotics at two weeks old. At four weeks I had sore, red and shiny nipples and pain when breastfeeding, and LO had a rash on her bottom. The Dr did a swab of her bottom which WAS thrush, and gave us a cream which has cleared it up. I have been using Daktarin and vinegar water on my nipples, have cut out sugar, have given my nipples air, and taken acidophlus and probiotics. I also had the one-off dose of Diflucan, but it didn't help. Last week I went back to the Dr and she took a sample of my milk and a swab of my nipples. I just got the results and it says there is no trace of thrush!! So WHY are my nipples sore and red? It hurts to latch LO on but then the pain goes, so I don't think it's poor latching. I also get some shooting pains in my breasts. What on earth? I am hoping someone has some ideas as to what this could be! Thanks!
