so I called my mw and she called in a prescription for me. I started Fri night and while Adam's mouth is getting better I am not :@ One side didn't really hurt and now it does, the first few min of feeding bring tears to my eyes and sit there and try for a few min before I even let him latch. I should have gone with my instinct to use gentian violet like last time (I was trying to avoid only b/c last time I was home alone with ds1 apart from nights when dh came home and I could sit on the couch all day basically topless with my stained boobs. Now I have ds and mil/bil are living with us.
This morning I noticed the one wasn't bothering as much to start with now has a nice cut on the side of the nip
I can't wear a shirt without a bra b/c the whole boob hurts and the rubbing kills
sorry all I do is vent haha
first for having it again (had with ds1)
Second argh for not realizing sooner (even though I had it before)
last time I'd cry for the whole feed. This time I knew my nipples were sore/raw even to touch but i just thought it was b/c I had bad cracked to start with (even before delivery) and figured they were just healing. I knew that Adam had a white tongue but honestly I thought it was bm until today he was in the natural light and opened real wide and I saw spots on his cheeks and back of throat dang it!
I'm hoping to try natural remedies...thoughts? Thinking either diluted vinegar or baking soda (even before trying gentian violet which I used last time). Can't decide though if I should call mw since I'm trying natural or still double check with them. ds1 didn't have in his mouth so that part is a first for me
