Hi,


This is my third nursling so I have lots of nursing experience under my belt, however, this is the first time I've ever encountered something like this.


DS is 11 mos old, teething, and was up all night last Tuesday night and I was basically a human pacifier.

DS: Liam 07/15/04, Tyson 09/04/06 & Dean 11/02/08

you can make your own APNO with recipe from our CL Paula:

"make your own OTC APNO cream, using hydrocortisone, lotrimin and polysporin. We used a 1/8 measuring spoon from a dollar store measuring spoon set, and took equal squirts of each and put into small sealable container. Blended well (with toothpick) and applied this after each nursing. This "recipe" was giving to my dd by an LC friend and it worked wonders. It does NOT need to be washed off - if you see any ointment remaining next nursing or pumping time, just wipe it away with damp cloth."
