So, I'm fairly certain I've got some thrush going on with my nipples. Bright red, starting to get some stinging pain in my breasts and with latch. Not terrible yet, but I like to be proactive. Happened to have my 6wk checkup today. And my OB agreed and gave me a script for 2 weeks of Diflucan. Every single thing I have EVER read about thrush and breastfeeding says you should always treat both mother and baby regardless if they both have symptoms or not. Well, called the pediatrician, and I was told that he won't treat without symptoms, that just because I have it doesn't mean that DS will get it....blah blah blah. I quit listening.
So what should I do? I hate the thought of spending 2 weeks taking a med, sterilizing crap, not adding to my freezer stash, just to have to do it all over again. Is there a chance since it seems to be caught early on that he won't get it? Other steps I can take to make sure he doesn't?
