How's O feeling now?

Her nose is a bit snuffly still but otherwise she's back to normal. I have mastitis now though, probably because she has been struggling to feed properly due to her blocked nose. How're you two getting on?

Oh no! Poor you! Feels abit like one going after another some times doesn't it??!!? Are you on antibiotics? Or managing without? Hopefully her feeling and therefore feeding better will sort you out
We're ok thanks........still having some latch/thrush issues.... Have been working with the infant feeding team at my breast feeding clinic who have been lovely. Not sure if I did or didn't, or if I still do/no longer have thrush (iykwim lol) as some of the symptoms match boy thrush and having less than perfect latch. But then again the symptoms are slightly better so there is a school of thought that I have/had both at some point. So I'm due to go back to them this week to see what they say. May be swabbed to check for thrush but am going to let their advice lead what I say to my gp at 6 week check next week. M is thriving though so something is obviously going right from a milk perspective, just need it to hurt less now lol

Been on antibiotics since Friday. Just worried about them causing thrush, so on the look out constantly.
Sounds like you're coming out the other side which is good, and how fantastic that you've kept going this far, it's not easy!

Yes very wise - you don't want that! Although the upside is you'd be able to treat very quickly :)
No definitely not easy........feels easier but definitely not right just yet, but worth persevering
Hope the antibiotics have you feeling better :)
