I have an 11 week old whom i have been breastfeeding since day one. the first two weeks were the worst but we got through them and then it was smooth sailing, until we got thrush. We made it through that too. But, now we are back again to where my nipples are red, sore, peeling, cracking, and bleeding...I have no idea why. I dont think its thrush again because my baby doesnt have the white spots in her mouth. I did however get the mirana put in about two weeks ago and this onset started about a week ago which was also when i started having a period(?). Could the mirana be causing me to have this problem? I still have meds left over from the thrush and have been putting it on my nipples. They are so sore that i have resorted to pumping only which isn't any better but at least i dont feel like crying while doing it.View Thread
