uhgg the dreaded thrush!!! when my LO's were down to nursing less than 4 times a day and I got thrush i air dried like crazy. Stopped all soap and powder and perfume
washed my bras and hung them in the sun to dry and cut sugar, pasta, bread and beer out of my diet for a week. i was able to battle thrush with out meds. b/c my LO's were hardly nursing at that point. I also cleaned LO's mouth after meals.
i know for most moms this is not the go-to-method but it worked for me when i had older nursers.
The time I got thrush when dd#4 was an infant i used an orange flavored gel/paste in his mouth and on my nipples. I don't have the name of the medication but I had to buy it from a woman who brought meds. from the UK to the USA b/c it wasn't available here.
