    Default Nipple thrush or just sore?

    Hi, my DS2 is 7 wks old now and has been a great feeder from day 1 (very lucky!). The last couple if days he seems to be very fussy and is feeding non stop for about 2-4 hours a couple of times a day. It's exhausting but I'm hoping its a little growth spurt or something.

    Anyway, my nipples are really really painful, and they look quite pink. I'm
    unsure if I have thrush or if they're just raw from all the feeding.

    Are there any real tell-tale signs for nipple thrush? My baby doesn't have any signs of oral thrush so far.

    Thanks

    Very well could be thrush, have you tried some nilstat or dactarin I think is the other one?

    No pain in the breast, just nipples. I might try some daktarin gel in there if I can get to the chemist, just in case. Thanks ladies
