Re: Thrush and Genetian Violet
hi, there...my dd and i battled through thrush too...in fact, i just got done taking my diflucan and i'm still applying nystatin on her tongue....and i'm still using the all purpose nipple cream (apno). our pedi didn't prescribe the genetian violet...though i've read a bit about it and i've never read about it being given to the baby...i've always read about nursing mothers applying it to their breasts. hopefully someone one their will chime in with their experience.
maybe the toxic sign is a warning if you give your dd too much of it?! i'd be wary of it, too. you could also contact your local LLL or your hospital's lactation specialist...they should be able to help you out. i got a lot of good advice/help from the lactation specialists in the hospital that i gave birth in.
i hope your dd gets better soon! keep up the good work, mama!
