I’ve thought for about a month now that I had thrush.
I wasn’t sure since Oliver’s latch was so damn bad starting out that I just assumed the pain was due to that. Oliver’s mouth was decently clear, so when my pain went away I had every reason to continue with the idea that the pain had been due to poor latch – the pain had never been as bad as I had read.
When we went for Ollie’s two month check, I specifically asked her to check Oliver’s mouth for thrush and teeth. [He’s been chewing like a mofo.] She diagnosed Oliver with thrush and suggested gentian violet. I had been warned that it stained, but in my “I know more than you” attitude, I just assumed that everyone else had been doing it wrong.
Yeah…gentian violet stains.
And that cap with the hole in it? That’s not a “gurgle cap” like on a liquor bottle so don’t squeeze the bottle.
I was supposed to dilute the stuff 3 to 1 and ended up with 1/2 a cup of gentian violet.
