...based on the NHS website it might be thrush? She is feeding ok and my nipples are not sore.
My GP will always see babies same day: it will be ok to wait till Monday if she's in no pain and feeding well? Our local "out of hours" is at the local hospital and chock full of drunken undesirable types by 3 pm Sat! With a long wait.
Of course if she starts to look pained I would take her. smile

If it's not bothering her or you, I would wait for a normal appointment.

Cool thought that would be ok but didn't want to be negligent.
Will hot wash my bras and keep the boobs dry in the meantime! smile

Whereabouts in her mouth? If it's on the roof of her mouth it might be an 'Epstein's Pearl'. A little cyst some babies get in the middle of the hard palate - nothing to worry about.
