I'm currently nursing my 18 month old daughter. We have battled thrush repeatedly in our nursing relationship. The DOC has given her nystatin and Daktrin gel. Numerous times. I've insisted as the nursing mother... I should be treated with diflucan, which he prescribed one dose.
After the last treatment her thrush went away for a month and has come back. Now the DOC has said well at this point you should wean her bc nothing else can be done to stop the thrush.
I'm very stressed over it as she has a strong emotional attachment to nursing, and she is a terrible eater. I'd say most of her nutrition comes from me. The comment has also been made that she shouldn't be getting any night feeds at her age.(we breastfed on demand and co sleep)
Any advice to save our nursing relationship???
Thank you so much for any help offered xx
