I feel your pain! Maddie had it this summer. Although I wasn't nursing anymore. I remember having to throw away nipples & pacis! She was right in the beginning of the "put everything in her mouth" stage.

have a fever, just cleaned 3 days of backed up poop off a bedroom floor, then slipped in a piece of chewed up pineapple on the kitchen floor. It's the day from Hell. My misery welcomes you.

hays said...

meg - thanks for being my buddy in this.

I feel your pain... tail tucking, white knuckled kinda pain... we are just recovering from our little battle with thrush. kiss that little face for me.

That seriously sucks! I remember nursing Caitlyn with breast infections and crying from all the cracks. So in honor of your post I will tell you that while I was reading, I actually reached up and cupped my boobs in empathy. I hope it gets better soon!

the crew said...

sorry to hear- that is awful. Hope you're able to rest up and recover quickly!

Rachelle said...

that sucks. i've never had that while nursing. but my sister just had the same thing with her newborn. she said it hurt!!!

feel better!!

Lewieville said...

I have no idea how it feels... but I am sending warm wishes anyway! Love ya.

{Erica} said...

oh i so feel your pain. seriously...the memories of that period in my life makes me sick to my stomach. I hope it clears soon!

wish there was something else I could do for you.

The Hyde Family said...

So sorry! I had it with Ellie...it seemed to last forever!I would cry when I nursed, it hurt so bad. I would bleed every time. Hang in there!!

Sarah Peterson said...

funny- for me- breast feeding has always just been painful. I didn't realize till now that some of that could have been due to thrush. Claire had it 2 times! The Doctor never said anything about it effecting me! It is all starting to kinda make sense!
I hope things get better soon! You have enough to worry about then painful boobs too!

sheena said...

Gentian Violet. For you and her. It's purple and will stain everything, including her mouth (she'll look like your little geisha), but it works! And all natural.

good luck.

ISBAM said...

REALLY hoping that ends soon. Painful nursing sucks. And makes you cry whenever you hear your baby acting hungry. So Sorry!

hays said...

oh yes - the gentian violet. my baby's mouth has been purple for a day now and every time i see it i laugh.

so that, breast shields, plenty of lansinoh, and some rx stuff are getting us through it, but i seriously don't wish this on anyone...

Karen and Joe said...

ugh! So sorry to hear that! well wishes definately coming your way. My toes curled and i winced as i read this....hope it gets better quick.

Cereal In My Stiletto said...

oh that sounds awful... never experienced it, but can only begin to imagine the pain! hope it passes soon!!

JRC said...

A lady in my ward says she gets thrush with every kid so with her last baby she has stayed off sugar and bread because that's what yeast thrives off of and she says it helps a ton.

hays said...

yeah - i have also cut out sugar and a lot of milk. whatever i can do to eradicate this thing!

i have always wondered if i could do without sugar. it's been like 4 days and hasn't been all that hard - however, i have a good reason to fear it right now too :)

TheKeilShpeel said...

ok.. I never had thrush but just nursing for those first 3 weeks made me want to scream, cry, rip my hair out and give up nursing. (I actually did give up nursing with my first..with other difficulties) then adding mastitis every week on top of that.. I'd be preggy 100 times if I could.. i love every minute of it but I can't do the first 2 months over and over again.. It's too painful.

I have a hallowed reverence for purple dye.
We got it hard Thanksgiving day, after driving all the way to UT from the peninsula. There was a walgreens open that had it hours away just outside SLC. I really pissed my husband off for days because of the look of pain I had, screamless on my face, time after time. The small anatomy features almost fell off. The End. OH, and Jesus will probably have to hug me Himself for this when I get to see Him again.
God Bless You. God Bless you and your baby and your baby's grandma. And anyone who has to go through this.
((I hope you two are completely better now!!!!))
