EP'ing and thrush
I'm EP'ing and I have thrush. Do I need to pump and dump or is the milk not going to be contaminated? Thanks!

No!!!!!! Don't dump that liquid gold!!!!

You do however need to serilize all pump parts and bottles.

YOu are so awesome for EPing. I EP'd for 15 months, and it was so hard.

Don't throw out the milk! I had thrush while mostly EPing several months ago. I fed DD the fresh milk I pumped, and if I pumped extra, I just scalded it before freezing...I sterlized all pumps parts and bottles and nipples (anything that would come into contact with the milk) twice a day. I kicked it and never got it back...and she has since drank all the milk I had frozen during that time :-)

Good to hear that sterilizing worked for you. A friend gets a bad strain of thrush and she is afraid to contaminate her pump parts.

Its awesome that you are EP'ing! I did also but was only able to for 4 months. I had a mild case of thrush and I had to sterilize all the parts of my pump it did not come back after that.
