Re: Thrush? Breast itching. Very fussy baby. Excessive letdown!
The itching and white mouth definately sound like thrush. I read though, in the Dr Newmans book, that thrush doesnt usually cause discomfort in the baby so I dont know if that would be why she is so fussy? Timmy has had it twice and I never noticed any change in his temperment when he had it. I would say though to go ahead and treat the thrush, because it could just end up causing more issues if you wait. I ended up getting a clogged duct, than a bleb, because I waited too long to start the GV which was a nightmare. As for the excessive letdown Im sure once your supply regulates and you get on more of a schedule things will slow down. For now just keep changing your pads as soon as they are wet.
