  • It appears that it has no real cause or can come from being on antibiotics.

  • usually a type of "yeast infection" , mainly caught from other kids (by contact).

  • some from vaginal birth, because thrush is a form of yeast infection.

  • Thrush is simply a yeast infection. Yeast lives on everyone's skin... your's, mine, your baby's, everyone.

  • like the PP said, thrush is a yeast infection. It can happen in breastfed infants if mom was on antiobiotics especially (or baby!) an can be passed back and forth over and over if BOTH mom and baby aren't treated at the same time. It is no big deal and can be identified usually by a white coating in the baby's mouth.
