Breastfed baby tongue thrush?

Pic attached - does this look like thrush? It doesn't seem to rub off. The only reason I doubt it is that I don't have much pain in my nipples when feeding and I would have expected cracked nipples etc? 3 week old breastfed baby with really slow poor weight gain.

It does look like thrush. My dd always had a slight white tongue whilst being breastfed but this coating looks thicker

If you had thrush in your nipples you would know about it. When you shower it feels like the water are razor blades on your nipples.

I'm obviously not an expert but if it doesn't wipe off then I'd be erring on the side of thrush, even if you don't have it (yet) yourself. It can't hurt to go to the GP and ask.
