I did - just made sure I treated DD too. I used Grapefruit seed extract (10 drops to 100mls water)to wipe nipples before and after feed and also wipe DD mouth out. In case you pass it on to your DC

doihavetocleanthehouse Wed 29-Oct-08 22:22:17 problem is that Dr did not give me anything for DD. My baby brain prevented me from asking pertinent questions at the time - I know there can be problems passing it back and forth. Where do I buy Grapefruit seed extract from, health food shop??
