Our son will be a year in a couple weeks...he loves to nurse and I am not ready to stop nursing him yet, but i have had terrible trouble with my left nipple getting thrush since he was eight months old. I get it on both sides but the left side burn and itches worse and gets it more often. It gets so bad...It comes and goes. I fight it with g entian violet and the all purpose nipple ointment. My question is- is it possible to wean him from one side and let that side dry up and only nurse hime on the right side? Or is that a bad idea? Any ideas why the reappearing thrush? It gets so bad sometimes...but thankfully I have been able to push through it! He has never had symptoms of thrush. Anyway we love our precious little man and want what is best for him...he loves nursing!
