Im ready to give up and this is my last hope for help. We have had clogged ducts, thrush, latch issues etc. I also have sent a LLL help form about 2 weeks ago and never heard anything back on that. I have been diagnosed with thrush and both the baby and I are on Nystatin suspension. He gets it in his mouth every 6 hrs and I put it on my nipples after every feeding. I dont feel that it has gotten better and we have been using the medication for over a week. I want to cry every time he nurses and almost dread having to feed him because it hurts so bad. I almost get upset at the baby sometimes for pulling off when I know it isnt his fault that he is just trying to eat. I have Kaiser Insurance and have tried getting help from them and the only thing that they have done is had a lactation consultant talk to me over the phone and perscribed this medication.
I also think that maybe now we are having latch issues also because it sometimes hurts longer than just 15-20 seconds after latch on like the LC said that the thrush would do. I use a boppy pillow to keep him up level and latch him on like the showed us in the hospital.
I would love to continue nursing but at this rate I just cant. I am in some desperate need of help.
