Anyone had it? How long did it take for the pain to go away?
My older boy and I had thrush, it was so horrible, but his doctor gave us oral antibiotic drops and told me to put some on me and in his mouth and it went away pretty quickly, but I know how bad it can hurt!! I hope it goes away soon!! Sadly I cannot remember the name of the meds. It was over 6 years ago!!!

So sorry to hear Sarah! Hopefully you both get better soon! Goodness knows you need rest!

I've nursed all my kids at Disney at one time or another. My oldest was only nursed in private since he wasn't discrete by that age. (He was 3 years and 3.5 yearson two nursing trips). DD went as a nusling at 2 months old and 9 months old. (She only nursed at night on our last trip at almost 4 years). And my third was 11 months on his first and only trip so far as a nursling. Disney World is very easy to nurse in - plus when you have that child who lets out a scream, everyone around you is relieved when you start nursing and the child is magically quiet!

cereline - I wear normal bras and just pull up from the bottom. Just make sure they're not underwire and it's quite easy. I'm also small chested and found this so much easier. Also, since I don't wear nursing shirts, it's one natural step to pull both shirt and bra up from the bottom. Nothing shows and baby gets to nurse ASAP. I've been nursing 1-2 kids at a time for over 7 years now and only flashed one - and it was the one time I used a cover! (I hadn't realized it had fallen).

harleyquinn- I used Gentian Violet to cure my thrush and it worked within a day. But it's easy to get re-infected so make sure you washed your bras, towels, cloth nursing pads, etc in hot soapy water. Nystatin rarely works. Diflucan works much better than Nystatin. But Gentian violet works great and is cheap.

Thanks everyone! We have been on the meds all weekend and today is my first pain free day. I know I still have to be careful, but it feels so good to be back to normal. I'm just so glad I got the meds before the weekend or I would have done the Gentian Violet for sure!

I love my nursing bras from JC Penny. They don't have an underwire, but offer great support! DS is 14 months and they are still going strong!

We leave tomorrow and I am sooo excited. I am hoping that he wants to nurse on take-off and landing.

YES!! It can be awful! My breast feels your pain!

I know you said you already started meds so this info may not be needed - but I used gentian violet. I would just use a q-tip to dab it in baby's mouth then let her latch on to apply to my nipples. Yes, she had a bright purple mouth and I had bright purple nipples for a few days but it was worth it for the relief! :-)

You can get gentian violet at the drug store (it was only like $3) only a small amount was needed and it worked fast. I know some people worry about thrush and mouth cancer, but the amount actually used is such a small amount - not enough to cause cancer. You would have to use a huge amount to be concerned with causing cancer.

I am not saying that I would use this instead of meds from doctor, but I kept it around to use when I couldn't get to the doctor. (these things always popped up on Friday night!) Just thought I would pass on the info - hope this passes fast! ~ Melissa

Katie did. Of course, she is up for nursing anytime and anywhere. I can honestly now say there is no where in WDW that I wouldn't nurse! I never stepped foot in a babycare center. She nursed where ever we happened to be at the time.

It was a great trip. It would have been better if it was just me and my kids, but we made it through. By the last few days, we were separating from my sister and nephew pretty much all of the time. My older kids (12 and 10) are a lot of help, and don't whine nearly as much as my sister about helping with the baby!

I told the kids that from now on, if someone wants to come with us, they will get their own rooms and a copy of our plans. Then they can join us or not, but we won't wait for them! We made rope drop ONE day of the 8 day trip-that is not my kind of vacation!

hello again. I caught up with the thread and love reading your stories and experiences.

One of my fave stories was we were at one of the kid's ballgames. We ran into another set of parents that are friendly acquaintances. They are not "go out together friends" but they are def friends you would talk to for several min when you see them. I am an RN in my real life. At the time my daughter was just hitting the year mark. The man asked me "so are you still nursing?" I was surprised thinking "wow, this guy is a BF proponent, and I had no idea?!?!" I very proudly said "yes, she is still nursing a couple times per day." Well, he meant was I working as a nurse And, you should have seen his face. Very funny, innocent moment... you gotta know this guy. He is a jokester, always has the last word, and I made him speechless for a moment anyway.

Question for the moms that use the baby carriers. I am really considering this over the summer. I have kids active in 4H, and I know I will be spending several days 2 diff. weeks at fairs. THen there is the WDW trip, so I am thinking may be I can learn to use a carrier. Question is ... my DD (almost 9 mo) usually nurses in the sideways reclined position. How do you manage this in the carriers? I cannot imagine her nursing facing me straight on.... does not sound comfy. I just can't get the visual of how the carrier works for an older baby that is not in the sideways sling position.

Mommy Poppins... started reading your TR.....I love your style. I come from a similar level of "madness" - this baby makes 5 kiddos for us to track around (oldest is 17 y.o. down to 9 month old). I was one that needed that 3-4 year break between babes which made me a pretty old mommy in the delivery room.

LOL funny story!

You can nurse side sitting in a ring sling. The only downfall to a sling is you either have to take it off and put it on your other shoulder for the baby to switch sides, or the baby has to not care that the rings are bumping into it's head on one side. lol.

Also, I nursed in a side sitting position in the ergo. Not how you are supposed to wear it, but if you are just doing it while nursing it's better than having no baby carrier at all. Just can't take your hands off baby. If you want I can take a picture and show you. It's kinda awkward to nurse with the baby vertical, not the most comfortable because like my baby she turns her head sideways to lay it on my chest and drags my breast with her. lol.

a picture would be very helpful if you don't mind We went to a movie last week and she wanted to nurse yet she wanted to watch my other kids yet she wanted to look at the movie every few seconds. She was so distracted her head was on a swivel. I decided to stand in the back of the theater to at least eliminate the distraction of my other kids. She was able to nurse, but she is getting heavy & long enough that nursing her while standing without other support is getting difficult.
