DD is 8mo, neither of us has had thrush ever but yesterday I notice white patches in her mouth and a white tongue, and it only just hit me this afternoon when I saw it again - it must be thrush? Where on earth would she have got it from? I rarely give her a bottle - perhaps from her dummy but still, where would it have come from? I have no symptoms! I have a doctor's appointment for tomorrow afternoon with a new GP and I'm not confident he will know anything (last one couldn't diagnose thrush in a friend that had a huge problem with it), so what should I ask for? Can I get anything this afternoon from our small village chemist? Should I use nipple shields to protect myself (I have some)?

Have a read of this.

May be good to print it out and take to gp if they are not up on these things.

Plus boil bras, dummies, any washable breast pads.
