I think that my baby and I have thrush... gross! His bottom has red spots all over it, and my nipples are burning. I talked to the nurse at my ped office, and she said to put anti-fungal cream on his bottom and my nipples (and to wash it off when I feed him). Does this sound right? I am new to breastfeeding (and motherhood!), and have had one problem after another... I just want to make sure that I'm doing the right thing!
Thanks for any advice.
