Doesn't my son look thrilled to be wearing purple lipstick? Poor baby.
Well, truth be told, it is not purple lipstick at all, and I am not just pretending I have a baby girl. Not that baby girls wear purple lipstick, at least none I have ever met. I regress. It is something called Gentian Violet, which is a natural cure for thrush/yeast. Caleb and I have been passing a yeast infection back and forth via breastfeeding for over a month now, and I decided to give this cure a try! Considering his mouth is purple and he breastfeeds, you don't even want to know what else is also purple! ha! Seriously though, this stuff really works, and I think the infection is going away in both of us. Hopefully I won't have anymore pain during nursing soon, so I can get back to enjoying the bonding time, instead of gritting my teeth and baring it!
