Never once did I have troubles breastfeeding Mr. E – for 21 months.
So far I’ve had one hell of a time with W. We had bad latch leading to the most horrific pain, a nursing strike at eleven weeks old, and now thrush. It is so awfully painful and I am just fed up with it all.
My doula has suggested I:
- apply probiotics to my nipples and to W’s gums
- sun my breasts
- cut/reduce my sugar intake (sugar feeds yeast)
- switch to disposable breast pads (boo!)
All of which I am doing, but I’d love to hear from the internets, what have you done to successfully kick it?
