Still nursing my DS who will soon be 14 months ...he is an avid nurser about 2-6 times a day depending how many hours I'm home. He got his teeth at around 8 months and Thank the Lord never bites...but this week my left nipple has become very sensitive. I have not gotten my AF back yet so maybe I will soon? The reason I think it may be yeast is because my DS got a really nasty diaper rash a few days ago that was getting worse till I started treating with anti-fungal creams (lotrimin and tea tree oil) and today my right nipple hurts too (ONLY the nipple/areola)...Also, DS doesnt seem to have signs o thrush in his mouth...So how do I know if its yeast? If it is, will treating the diaper rash be enough or do I need to treat my nipples too?
Please help! The pain is making me want to nurse less and somehow my son seems to want to nurse a lot more often!!!!
