Re: Thrush? Breast itching. Very fussy baby. Excessive letdown!

It sounds like thrush to me DD and I battled it off and on for her first 6 months. We found that acidopholus powder worked. I put it on my finger and gave about 1/4tsp to dd each morning. I also took garlic tablets, gse and ate yogurt.

I had severe let down, so like you, my pads were always soaked. The only thing that kept the yeast off my breast was a compounded nipple cream perscribed by my lc.

Sunshine works great to kill the yeast on your breat, if you don't mind a little topless sunbathing.

Good luck, mama!
