    I think I have thrush in my nipples :| Tyler has his 6 week check next week, would they prescribe something to us then or would I need to make another appt??

    I would go docs sooner maybe as it starts to get really painful. I was just feeding Kynon and thinking the same we've just had it as well

    Oh Hun so sorry to hear that. Fin and I had it at 3 weeks....he had spots on his bum but i thought it was nappy rash. My nips then started hurting and it was v v uncomfortable. Try and get your 6 week check re-arranged for Monday if u can? They will give u liquid nystatin for Tyler's mouth and some cream (2 separate tubes) for your nipples and Tyler's bum. It's quite horrid but it will feel better after a few days. Do check with your docs how long u put crream on as my doc was not clear with me.

    You could always call in the chemist if your in pain for some caneston for your nipples not sure if the mouth stuff is available over the counter though
