So, I was put on antibiotics a couple of weeks ago for mastitis - fever, chills the whole deal hit me out of nowhere.... Now here we are and I just noticed my son has a white coating on his tongue and looks like the top of his mouth and gums.
today he's been pulling off while nursing and fussier than usual. I'm calling his dr first thing in the morning, but I just want to know what we are looking at dealing with here.
Also, Google left me with a ton of questions:
I've read not to use disposable nursing pads, but also that the yeast can stay in clothing after washing - I've been using cloth, but was afraid of contamination and considering getting disposables ?
I am also dreading the possibility of a terrible diaper rash from the medication to treat the thrush... Any experience there?
Anyone use grapefruit seed extract with any success? I'm thinking of at least using it in the laundry...
Any advice is appreciated or just commiserate with me please!
