Yeah that.
Also, While you are trying to get rid of yeast, you may go to sposies for a bit and treat the dipes with GSE, super hot water and vinegar rinses. Yeast can live in the dipes and cause the baby to keep getting it.

Also, probiotics for you- get the really good stuff- the ones with at least 5million um... CFU? I think that's what it's called.

You can use Lotrimin to ease some of the pain/itching for your nipples. Wash all of your bras in HOT water and add a little vinegar to the rinse. Boil all baby's pacifiers/artificial nipples for 20 minutes every night. Cut out as much sugar as possible from your diet- yeast thrives on sugar. Ummm...Ok, I think that's it! GL, mama!

Definitely TRY THIS!!!
