I am so happy. The thrush is a zillion times better for both Brian Patrick and me and my cracks are healing. BFing is so much easier today than it was 2 days ago.
Jamie recommended grapefruit seed oil, which I found in pill form and it really knocked out the thrush. Then she said a friend of hers was told to use aquaphor on her cracked nipples and just to wipe it off before she nursed her baby. Oh my gosh, it worked so well. I've been a huge fan of aquaphor for over 13 years, but I never thought to use it on my nipples. All I can say is it is fabulous.
Today I only topped Brian Patrick off twice with formula. I think we're turning a corner here and I am so happy. I feel like there is a good chance for us to make this work.
I can't tell you how much your support means to me. Not just here on the board, but also through FB and e-mail. If I didn't have you all, I probably would have thrown in the towel (or would that be the breast pad) last weekend.
