Oral Thrush Lock Rss

hi there
my baby boy is only 16days old and he has thrush in his mouth, therefor i have it on my nipples ( (ouch! took him to the clinic 2day and they told me to use "daktarin oral gel" on his mouth and my nipples.
we both are finding it very difficult come feeding time, becasue his mouth must be really sore, making it hard for him, and my breast are MEGA painfull ( almost results in tears wen he feeds)

Ive only put the gel on once so hopefully that will help, but does anyone have any other suggestions or advice?? any help would be very helpful.

thanks
jodi
Maybe you could express and give it to him in a bottle, even if u only do it a couple of times or alternate it might give you both a break long enough to tackle it again?? The bottle is supposed to be easier for them to empty to give him a rest and maybe exprressing wont be as painful as feeding??? just a thought.
