My daughter (6 weeks) has white on her tongue, but not the sides of her mouth. It's also just like white as if she was sucking on a lollipop, not cottage cheesey like the internet says. She's been pulling off a lot after she's done eating (while she's still comfort sucking), but doesn't cry. I've been having sore and pink nipples, but it could be because the pulling off. I haven't been having the shooting pains like the last time we had thrush. Is this thrush? If it's not, is there harm in treating it? I called the midwife to get the medication (5 days of pills) she gave me last time and I still have medication for her (nystatin liquid) from last time. And if it is thrush, is there anything else we should be doing to make sure it goes away this time? I'm kind of wondering if we didn't kill it off good enough the last time.
