  • It might be thrush, a yeast infection. It usually looks like milk on the tongue or in the mouth. You should have your doctor look at it.

  • sounds like thrush. my daughter is just getting over it (she's 5 months old) take your daughter to the pedi and they'll give her nystail (sp?) oh, and make sure you check her cheeks for white patches.

  • Does it wipe off? If it does, it's just formula "sticking" to her tongue.

    If it doesn't, it might be thrush and it would be a good idea to at least talk to the doctor.
