  • @jennbaylor12 did you ever nurse? I ended up with a knarly case of thrush from nursing 3-4 times in 1 week. I had sore/bruised beeping breasts, bright pink nips, sore sore sore nips, and pain that sometimes got worse when pumping.

    Lurking from sept 16- I hope you don't mind me sharing. 

    I nursed and had such sore nipples for the first 6 weeks. What saved me was this home made apno cream. It will work for thrush as well because it has a antifungal in it. 

    1. Home made APNO:

      1. 1 tsp neosporin

      2. 1 tsp monistat or other vaginal yeast cream (7 day with 2% miconazole)

      3. 1 tsp 1% hydrocortisone ointment

      4. Mix all together in a container and place a tiny bit on nipples 3x a day after

        breastfeeding/pumping

      5. Use a warm facecloth to wipe off any residue before latching again.

  • @jennbaylor12 I noticed that I had a constant 'bruised' feeling, super sore nip that would never relax, and my nips were super bright pink. When I described that to my OB she just wrote a script. The APNO cream should take care of anything&everything though if you try that.

  • How long can you leave out bottles that are half and half formula & breastmilk? I made a bottle a while ago that was 2 oz premixed formula and 3 oz breastmilk thinking that LO would wake up around midnight to eat. Its 1am and shes still sleeping.... which is awesome but I hope I didnt just waste 3 oz of breastmilk in a bottle i have to dump!

  • One hour... it's like discarding formula an hour after baby started drinking it. I totally get the frustration of having to throw away good breast milk  :/

  • I would go by the expressed milk rule of 5 hours. I used to pump the first night bottle before I went to bed and left it next to the bassinet so I didn't have to get up. Now he occasionally makes it longer then 5 hours so I had to stop. Formula is good for 24 hours as long as baby didn't drink from it isn't it?

    ^This is correct. As long as it hasn't been started formula is good for 24 hours if refrigerated, and 6 hrs without being in the fridge. 
     
    If the bottle has been started, it is only good for 1 hr as the formula will breakdown faster than the BM(2-3 hrs).
