    I had a quick look and it looks like a bit of white on bubs tongue. I keep thinking I'm imagining it/misreading normal for white etc if that makes sense).

    Looks like nilstat is the way to go..

    Nilstat can be used for both . Bub gets 0.5-1ml and you rub a little on your nipples . Cheapest and easiest way to go. I always suggest to breastfeeding mums they treat them selves anyways if bub has thrush .

    That's a very expensive way to go . I would try nilstat first . Ask to speak to the pharmacist .

    Yes you are right it's not cheap. We had had the thrush for awhile though. I agree try nilstat first.

    VP when DS was a newbie he had suspected oral thrush and I had nipple thrush. The midwife doing postnatal checks said to get nilstat for DS and daktarin oral gel for my nipples. I'd start with those, they're cheap and can be bought from the chemist without prescription. The daktarin oral gel was behind the counter though. Hopefully it clears up easily for you.

    Unfortunately it didn't clear up my thrush (nilstat seemed to work for DS, if he did actually have oral thrush) and I had to take a 10 day course of diflucan. Very expensive at $20 per tablet!

    VP, this is from the royal women's hospital in Melbourne:
    Guideline for nipple to hrush.
    https://thewomens.r.worldssl.net/ima...ple-thrush.pdf

    I had it several times over 4 months as I had antibiotics in labour. To beat it I used daktarin cream after feeds (for ages), daktarin gel on bub 4 times a day for a week then tapered it off, and took the oral diflucan and nilstat.
    I started with the cream and gel which were over the counter, then printed out this guideline and took it to my GP to get the correct prescription for the tablets. Wishing you success.

    Quick question are the fluconazole and oral nystatin over the counter or prescription meds?

    Fluconzale is the one cap dose for vaginal thrush which is OTC z you can get a box on script which is private but may be cheaper in long run. Do you have phi? If you get a script you may be able to claim the cost on your extras .
