You can give it her an hour after she eats if she'll take it better. They just want there to be an hour or two between taking it and eating again. Are you breastfeeding? If you are you should be treating your nipples too. If she takes a pacifier make sure ou are washing them daily along with anything she may be putting in her mouth.
Yes I've also been treating myself and washing her pacifiers, it just feels like its taken forever. I heard about Gelitin violet? Not sure if it can be used or if the thrush had to be really bad where their in pain? I heard it gets rid of it within a couple days?
It can get to the point where it hurts and them baby will start to eat less because of it. I have no experience with that med. Id get back into the doctor and she what they say. If you are doing all that it should of gone away by now.
I think tomorrow gave you good advice to still giver her the medication even if an hour after feeding. What about right before??
Be careful with things you just buy in a health food store. Make sure you run it by your doctor and get dosages. The things about 'natural' things is that you are taking them like a drug. Therefore, they might have side effects like a drug and dosing still needs to be considered whether natural or not. So, have a doctor help you with anything natural you do.
Ok, thanks for the advice girl:)
Run gentian violet by your pediatrician and get the ok first. My son and I just got over thrush, it is no fun at all. His ped suggested gentian violet, I bought the 1% and diluted it with sterile water to 0.5% and put it on my nipples before he nursed at night for 3 nights and felt relief after the second night.
