Thrush in babies

(2 Posts)

One of my baby girls [12 week twins] has thrush in her mouth. The doctor advised that it was not worth treating as it does not harm baby but I am not convinced. Can anyone recommend any natural remedies or even advise anything they were prescribed in same situation.

It seems to be most common when breastfeeding which I am not, DD has it on her tongue only. Thanks for any help.

Have a look at the breastfeeding board and website. I think the Breastfeeing Network(?) on Google has some really good advice. I used Daktarin with DD which I got over the counter but it isn't advised until 4 months. I think it is a bit easier to manage if you're not breastfeeding as you won't be passing it to each other over again.
