Dont look too hard for those white patches or worry too much! They will show you when and if they arrive! Try putting desitin on the rash. if it doesnt clear after a couple of weeks. then i would call the pediatrician. diaper rash can come from just about anything. the little white dots on the roof of his mouth are quite common. MY baby had them. the ped. said they will go away after the first months My ped told me when looking to see if its thrush or not. in his mouth it will look white and streaky and kind of like a snow driven pattern. keep those nipples clean and dry! you are doing great!!


Itchy breasts during breastfeeding could be because of thrush, which could have infected your baby. Check to see whether your little one has white patches and velvety lesions inside the mouth. If he does, then this could be the cause of your itchy breasts. Itchy breasts cause reddened and cracked nipples and deep shooting pain in breasts. Sometimes this is accompanied by itching in the vaginal area, with a thick discharge. Visit your doctor, in case the unceasing discomfort is intolerable or interrupting your everyday work. The doctor will prescribe certain ointments for external application as well as for consumption.


A very itching breast during nursing could be because of an infection. Mastitis is one such infection, which is rather common in breastfeeding mothers. Nipples sometimes crack while nursing the baby and this allows viruses and bacteria to enter and cause infections. Along with swelling around the breasts, women with itching breasts could also have fever and feel extremely tired. Inform the doctor about the problem and he may prescribe antibiotics to get rid of the infection. First time mothers are more prone to the problem of itchy breasts while breastfeeding, than those who have nursed children earlier.


Pregnancy brings about certain hormonal changes to your breasts developing milk cells and milk ducts. To better prepare yourself for breastfeeding, you can read books and resourceful websites. Get yourself specially designed pregnancy bras that come with a convenient flap and provide good support. Breast pillows can also be used to better support your nursing baby. Use breast pads to wipe away droplets of milk around the breast area. Breastfeeding actually helps reduce body fat gained during pregnancy and helps shrink the uterus. Once your infant is about 6 months, it is advisable to take him off breastfeeding. Category.
