It looks like Finn's thrush is back. This past weekend I saw the white in his mouth again and was so discouraged. We went to see the pediatrician on Tuesday and they prescribed more of the oral drops, probiotics for his gas as well as the nipple cream for me.
Yesterday I saw my OB whose first question was if we had sex. Sex? Who has time these days? We've made out but it's a little strange especially hearing the baby coo in the background. LOL! Going to have to adjust. He did an internal exam and sure enough I have an infection. Oh joy!
He also prescribed Bio K for me, Diflucan to treat the thrush agressively to take with the nipple cream and this medicated gel.for my vajayjay infection. He even gave me a prescription for the pill. I feel like a walking pharmacy.
I'm tired, drained and wonder if I'm the only one here!

I feel like we're a walking pharmacy over here, too. . . I am still treating Adalyn for thrush, as well as myself. . . Then we are giving her gas drops some days. And now she has meds for reflux. . . Oy!

I hope you both get all better soon!

I hate that you are having to deal with all that!
Won't the birth control dry up your breast milk, though?

Oh no!! Poor Finn & poor mommy! I hope things get better soon!


Sherry at my OB check there were very few birth controls that you could take while breast feeding. But, they do exist lol. I was told there's one pill form, the iud and then the one they insert in your arm, not sure what it was called.

My OB knows I'm breastfeeding. He told me it was completely safe. David is asking me why I'm even bothering taking the pill!
Allyssa, Finn had been spitting up loads too. I'm wondering if the thrush isn't in their tummies. Finn is also taking those gas drops.
Nightmare!!!

There's the mini pill that is safe while nursing.

Because nursing isn't an effective form of BC - Silly husbands!

Adalyn has been spitting up since before she got thrush - So I know it isn't related. I'm not sure that the thrush could be in their tummies.
