Re: Recurrent thrush...help!
Welcome, and yikes! Recurrent thrush is nasty. But it's not usually a sign of any sort of immune deficiency. I'm really sorry the nurse put that particular bug in your ear. It's so easy for a mom to take a tossed-off comment very much to heart.
I would go ahead with the Diflucan for the baby. Maybe try gentian violet as well: http://www.breastfeedinginc.ca/conte...gename=doc-UGV. And while I know the rigorous hygiene is exhausting, I would keep at it for a bit longer.
Kellymom.com has some good resources on thrush: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/thrush-resources/
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
