I have a cracked nipple that I have had for 8 weeks now. 5 of the weeks I had thrush, which was the reason I was told it was not healing. How do I go about getting this darn thing healed? It only hurts when DS nurses for a prolonged time. DS is a bit aggressive at the breast, i have tried nursing on the other breast first, then switching over like kellymom suggest. I also soak it in a saline solution when I remember....my brain fails to remind me to do this most of the time! Should I stop nursing and try to pump only on this breast? I will not be able to pump at night. I don't have the energy to set up the pump when i am half awake! Plus it would wake up DH. Should I stop nursing and pumping all together until it heals? and just feed off one breast? I do have OS so maybe it won't make me dry up during the healing process? Arg! help!
