My baby (4 weeks) and I have thrush. We were nursing great, and now she is on a strike. She latches on to pull right off and fusses the entire time. I have been waking her up at 2 hours she won't even consider nursing so I try at 3 and 4, but it has been about 12 hours and she has only nursed for about 10 minutes 2 to 3 times. She has wet 3 diapers in the last 6 hours, and this is substantially less than she usually does. We have been treating the thrush for 3 days, and I don't know what else to do to encourage her to nurse more.
We are going to the pediatrician again today, but if anyone has advice to help ease her discomfort please let me know.
