What the HELL?!
Any advice? I don't think the doctor's office is open tomorrow. What treatment can I start for thrush right now?
Yeah, breastfeeding is a frickin' riot.
This whole thing started with a milk blister, so I thought I "just" had a plugged duct. Now it's possible that was my initial thrush warning sign.
Updated in the cool light of morning to add: Now that I'm not currently faced with a screaming, pulling-off-the-breast desperate child, I've come up with a few plans. I'm going to pick up acidophilus capsules, Kyolic (garlic) pills, and start downing large amounts of vitamin C. We'll use vinegar rinses on the twins, me and our clothing and buy a whacking lot of new breastpads.
It's very hard to maintain your cool in the face of a screaming pain-filled baby.
