I know there are many thrush posts, but LO is due to be getting up from a nap soon so don't have the time right now to go through them all. And of course all these questions are coming to me now instead of at the Dr's, but for thrush I think you'll have better information anyway!
My LO, 10.5 months, and myself just saw the Dr today for thrush. They prescribed us Nystatin. Kind of upset to have this after 10.5 months of no problems breastfeeding. Anyway, this is my first child and have never dealt with thrush so was wondering what precautions I should take to make sure it goes away and stays away? I was planning to replace all pacifiers and bottle nipples after it's gone away - is that needed?
Also, until it goes away do I need to boil pacifiers and bottle nipples every night?
What about my pump parts - just use the microwave steam bags every night?
Wash all my clothes, bras in hot water - anything else?
The medicine we have is liquid and I pump 3 times while I'm at work. Should I apply the medicine to me after each time I pump (don't really have time to let things air dry)? Should I change my nursing pads more than once a day?
Anything I can do for my pain until this gets better, specifically when LO is nursing?
Thanks in advance for all of your wisdom!!
