My nextdoor neighbor is a lactation consultant and helped me out when I was dealing with this. I used gentian violet and the APNO. The APNO works for any kind of discomfort besides thrush. When you wean and the hormones start shifting, you might experience some nipple discomfort again like PMS or early pregnancy type nipple pain and the APNO will help then too.
Thanks, I think the coconut oil actually made it worse, I was on the mend not expericening much pain but my nipples were cracking, then once i started using the coconut oil it was shooting, burning, itching pain. I actually sat there at on point crying because i didn't want to feed him I knew it would hurt so bad. DH convinced me once i got it over with, we'd research other methods. So i squeezed his hand until the pain subsided and we spent all night calling pharmasies to see who carried gentain violet. Finally found some and also got some vitamin E oil. So far its feeling a lot better. I've been boiling everything and washing with bleach and grapefruit seed extract, I'm just ready to go back to a normal nursing relationship with DS. Both my mom and boss said they never got thrush and they bf 3 and 5 babies each.

Just wanted to add that the gentain violet helped a ton and i also had my doc call me in some all purpose nipple ointment, its getting a lot better. I'm really hoping to have my normal nursing relationship back soon.
