Re: Husband won't support my desire to wean
Thanks for the complete description! It definitely sounds suspiciously thrush-y. Pink nipples, cracks, a deep throbbing pain in between feedings. Couple those symptoms with the fact that your LO already had thrush and that it can be hard to beat... Yeah, I'm thinking your doc was right. Did she tell you to treat both yourself and the baby? Often docs don't know that both members of the nursing pair must be treated, even when one is asymptomatic.
The one thing that makes me wonder if something else is going on is those red streaks on the breast. It's possible that you have a breast infection (a.k.a. mastitis)- streaks could indicate that.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
