Quoting 2PrincessesMama:“ They didn't tell me to not nurse, they told me to, but I desperately needed a couple days to recover. ... [snip!] ... it. You guys have inspired me to put him back on. I am going to try tonight, when things are settled and we are comfortable.”
yeah you really do need to get him back on because it helps wash the infection and the meds through. i know how uncomfy it is. i would cry evertime i knew she was gonna latch, i was scared to latch her, i winced at the thought. but after a few days it got better once i started the meds. mine went on for over a month because first i didnt know what was goign on, everyone said it was a latching problem, and i was about to give up bfign altogether and i talked to the lac consultant and she said it could be yeast infection. so i called a nurse and the dumbass gave me a perscription for cream for the outside when the infection ws in the milk ducts. but i didnt know, i figured she knewwhat was going on. so eventually it got worse and worse so i went to the dr and they gave me diflucan to help, and after i took that it helped a lot. but i had to keep nursing despite the pain to get the infection out.
