Re: Thrush/milk supply
with the PP. Nursing less due to discomfort would be the pathway from thrush to lower supply. But feeling "empty" doesn't mean low supply. Most women start out making more milk than their babies require. It's nature's way of making sure that the newborn gets enough to eat wile mastering the art of breastfeeding. When you're making more milk than your baby needs, you're likely to feel full or engorged pretty often. But as time goes on, mom's body will "read" baby's demand and respond by making just the right amount of milk for the baby's needs. Once that adjustment happens, feelings of fullness or engorgement will decrease or even vanish. This is why the best way to assess milk supply is to watch the baby's diaper output and weight gain. As long as that is normal, so is supply and the baby's intake.
I would call the pediatrician again and ask for treatment for the baby. Both members of the nursing pair should be treated even if one is asymptomatic. Otherwise you're likely to bounce it back and forth.
