First off Juniper is 5 weeks old tomorrow. I thought we had thrush due to sore and red nipples and she had a white coat on her tongue. Well we called her pedi. and she had us use do Gentian Violet for three days applying it once a day to her mouth and my nipples. Well we are on day six, for the last three days my nipples are still red and it hurts for her to latch on at first and she still has the white coating on her tongue. I was reading on the LLL.org message boards that the white tongue thing can be normal. So that brings me to the fact that she may be latching weird. This is my first baby so I am not sure at all.
