Re: October "Pumpkin Patch" Chat! 10/10-10/16

For thrush, I would refer to Dr. Jack Newman's all purpose nipple ointment. It is not sold over the counter, but must be made by a pharmacist at q compounding pharmacy. Dr. Newman's website ,, has a resource list for finding a compounding pharmacy as well as the recipe for the ointment. If your dr/ped is unfamiliar with this rx, Dr. Newman will often talk to them via telephone and answer any questions he or she may have.

I am doing fairly well. Still at the hospital recovering. My incision site is achy, but manageable with meds. I am starting to feel some anxiety creeping in. I am also finding myself losing easily losing patience with my dh today. This may be due to only getting a total of 9 hours of sleep in the last 84 hours. My placenta is dehydrated and just waiting on the practitioner to finish with a birth so she can grind and encapsulate it. I am hoping it will take the edge off.
