Pacifier ALSO gets boiled every time. And yes, you must treat yourself... if you don't it's as if you're doing nothing at all. Both of you get treated because even if you're asymptomatic now you can have it. Every single thing that goes in his mouth gets boiled when it comes out.

Treat yourself, boil the paci every time you do the shield.
December 31, 2012 at 11:53 AMMy oldest had thrush at that age too and her pedi said to see if she would suck on a dill pickle. So we tried it...cut the tip off and gave it to her for a few seconds...she loved it! We did it 2x a day for 3 days and it was gone. Didn't ruin anything, she was ebf. Just a thought, you can ask the dr too

yes i would boil everything including the pacifier and treat your nipples just in case
