If newborn had oral thrush do I need treatment too?

If I were you I would take zinc supplement, that will probably solve both yours and your ds thrush, read up on it as zinc deficiency is linked to fungal infections.

Midwife says ds, 3 weeks, has oral thrush. Not surprise as being treated for thrush in nappy area and I had it badly week after he was born (always do when messed around with down there).

Question is do my nipples need to be treated to ensure not passed backwards and forwards? How are they treated? Midwife said not but internet research suggests otherwise.

Appt with Gp at 4.30 but any answers before then appreciate. Will put in children's health too.
