  • Thrush is kinda like a yeast infection...it is white spots in your LO mouth...it usually starts on the tongue and then works its way around the cheeks...if it gets really bad it can go into your LO's belly and cause a yeast infection on the private parts. My DD had it when she was little...the cure is some topical antibiotic and wiping the mouth frequently...

  • It's a yeast infection of the mouth and it's passed through the breast milk.

  • What she said ^^^^ prevention I dont think there is one...stay clean and antibiotics will help get rid of it. Milk can be mistaken for trush so dont freak out unless you have the doctor check.
