Re: Stubborn Thrush?
The gentian violet worked well for me, too but be careful- it stains. I put it on my nipples before a feed to get it in lo's mouth. I also added a cup of vinegar to our wash (in hot water) and rinsed my nipples after each feed with half vinegar half water.
Also, sterilize pacifiers, bottle and pump parts (if you use them), toys that lo puts in mouth, etc every day by boiling for 20 minutes.
This is what finally kicked it for us. Good luck!
Oh, the nystatin really upset my lo's tummy, it could be that. That's why I used gentian violet the next time we got it. It also could be the yeast in her tummy, but the nystatin should be taking care of that. Watch her diaper area for signs of yeast rash there as well- if it's in her tummy, it migh end up there too.
