A Great Big Thank You!

A HUGE thank you to all who responded in one way or another to my post on Thrush. I now have a few more options to try. Currently, I'm on another round of Fluconazole (generic for Diflucan) for seven days. I'm looking forward to that. Also, the best suggestion someone gave me that I hadn't tried or heard of was chamomile tea. You seep three chamomile tea bags in one cup of water for 20 minutes and then put that on your nipples. It does seem to help them feel better and heal. If Ben ever gets it back and gets another rash, I'm putting it on his bum, too. Another good thing I learned was to go to for any breastfeeding questions. There is a hotline in Greenville, SC for the lactation consultants there, but I'm not sure they want their number posted on the internet. If you need that info, feel free to contact me for it. Again, THANK YOU TO ALL!!!! YIPPEE!

Hey, Ellie!

Did you get in touch with the lactation nurses? I really hope that they helped you! I'm so glad to have them here in Gville...they have helped me on many, many, many occasions :)
