I'm a FTM to a 4 week old baby boy and I have been battling a yeast infection of the breasts for close to 2 weeks now. I was initially put on diflucan 150mg, one tab now, then repeat dose 3 days later. Did two rounds of that and was given APNO, which I've been using for about 5 days now. LO does not have thrush and is showing no signs of infection. He was a NICU baby, so I had been exclusively pumping up til just before his discharge, then was only putting him to breast a couple of times a day. I noticed a foul odor from left breast 2 days after he got home and immediately started dumping that side, I have no idea if this is what has spared him so far, but I haven't given him left side milk since that day. However, now my good right breast is also showing signs of yeast, plus his demand for milk is increasing to pretty much match exactly what I pump on the one side, sometimes more, so I'm getting a little more frantic to fix this! Yesterday I was started on a stronger, longer round of diflucan- 200 mg daily x 7 days. Still using APNO, visited whole foods yesterday to pick up probiotics...BTW, does anyone know of a chewable or liquid form that works well? I've never used probiotics prior to this and I'm really bad with swallowing pills. I found a liquid probiotic, but was really confused by all the multiple kinds, all seemed to have different types of probiotics and I didn't know if some were better than others for this problem. I also found a soap there to wash my breasts with called "candida freedom." I don't know if it's just in my head, but after 2 washes with that, my breasts are at least feeling a little better. Maybe it just soothed them a bit. I also got the GSE while I was there, but I'm not sure how to use. I've read to apply topically, diluting 5-10 drops in 30 ml water, but others say they drink it. Is one method better than the other for this issue? I am open to ANY advice, please let me know what has worked for you! I don't want to stop giving my baby breastmilk and would love to actually start NURSING him!
