My 9 week old and I have had thrush 4 times already. I cannot seem to get it to go away for good, though we've been prescribed medicine twice and I tried to cure it with gentian violet the last time. It goes away for a week or two and then comes back.
Tonight I bought a bottle of acidophilus (because I have not tried that yet in combination with all the other suggestions), but it says to not use it if breastfeeding. It contains cellulose, water, silica, and then all of the good bacteria. Do all bottles of acidophilus say to not us if nursing?
Also, I have been sterilizing my bottles in a microwave sterilizer instead of boiling them, like Jack Newman suggests. Is that okay?
