You swab a little on your nipple with a Qtip once a day for a week.

You can also call your OB for some Diflucan.
OK thanks I will try that!

I personally never felt comfortable doing that, especially since my LO was never "done" nursing.
Ahh well that's good to know.

She looks way less Asian now as a 16mos old, she looks like me w/a "veil" of her dada.

That said, every source I have (including the link below), says that any visible amounts of miconazole should be wiped off prior to the next feed, but the nipples do NOT need to be washed to remove any residual amounts.

I will consider this if the other stuff doesnt work for sure.

For now Im laying off all sugar (which dh doesnt think will help since breast milk has sugar in it) and using the diluted vinegar on my breast. Ill just grin and bear it for now. She may not nurse for an hour right after she falls asleep at night but she wakes up during the night to nurse, not sure how often for sure.

I appreciate everyone's responses.
