Re: Stubborn Thrush?
My midwife told me that if I took diflucan, my lo would get a small dose of it in my milk. She said it was fine and would help her thrush.
I've never used grapefruit seed extract, so I'm no help there, but I used the gv on myself without a break. I just gave my lo a three day break because I read it can be hard on them. I did 4 days on, 3 days off, 3 days on and it was gone by the 2nd day. I only gave her very small amounts- I'd dip the very tip of a qtip into the gv, then poke it in her mouth- once it hits her saliva it spreads all over, but you may want to get the qtip under her tongue and between her cheeks and gums just to be sure. I also painted my nipples with the stuff so that even during her 3 day break she was getting small amounts of it from my nipples. I liked this remedy the best because I felt immediate relief of the itchy/burning irritation on my nipples.
You may want to ask her ped about using nystatin and gv at the same time (or maybe you already did and I missed it).
Good luck!! You can do it!!
