Me and DD were diagnosed with thrush on Tuesday we have both been taking treatment since weds. One boob is feeling a little better but the other is still so sore! I would genuinely put the level of pain up there with labour!!
Anyone out there going through this or got any tips on how to get through it?
DD is 3 weeks tomorrow and I really am not ready to give up on breastfeeding but I can’t manage this pain!!
There is seriously no pain like it. Are you using daktarin cream? I found that helped within hours. Also keeping your nipples as dry as possible between feeds and then use lanolin right before feeding. Oh and ibuprofen!
I had it a few times and still managed to feed two kids for 20 months each. It felt like their mouths were filled with broken glass when I had it, but it can clear up so fast.
