I also diluted some vinegar and put it on my nipple for the time being till we get to the store.

Ive been really lucky as to not have any major boob complications from her nursing.

IF I do have to take the monistat, Im guessing Id just take it vaginally like a typical yeast infection?
Ive very rarely have ever had a yeast infection, which is surprising consider how much sugar/bread I consume.

Thanks for responding. If anyone else wants to contribute please do.
I think the Monistat goes on your nipple.
I personally never felt comfortable doing that, especially since my LO was never "done" nursing.
