    So apparently not a double post...

    I'm not eating much sugar at all (occasionally I have a cup of tea). I have to retake my GTT when bub is 6wks old and I'm terrified ill have diabetes, so I'm still eating my diabetic diet.

    Refined sugar is in heaps of things though and thrush loves sugar. Fruit juice and fruit is one of the worst culprits.

    I would get a second opinion maybe from your ob or a lactation consultant. Or another GP.

    They can't just leave you hanging with no treatment.
    I would try diflucan, at least 2 doses.

    I am eating a diabetic diet so have little sugar throughout the day. I don't have fruit juice and limit fruit to one serve a day.

    Im seeing my middie next week so I'll ask what she thinks too. The mchn said it might have been thrush that is gone now, and my nipple has been hurt (which would account for the vasospasm) so im going to lansinoh it to see if it heals up. Ive got one diflucan here so ill have that tomorrow morning and see how it goes.

    I found a crack in my nipple! Must be the source of the pain. How do I feed dd, but let it heal? I've been putting lansinoh on it. Dd has been fussy at it last night and today, I don't know why. She latches then let's go a few hundred times before actually drinking.

    Mine does that too and I find it frustrating. Sometimes I feel she wants a break from milk and needs a comfort suck so does this frantic latching on and off. I give her a paci at that point and safe either soothes to sleep, or after 5-10 mins calms down enough to have a proper feed.

    I find paw paw cream was best for nipple cracks.

    I was treated for thrush for weeks and weeks, until they realised that it was vasospasm caused by something else. It is agonising - I feel your pain Maybe time to see an LC??
