  • It might be thrush. Does your baby have any symptoms? Google it, and check it out. You can also Google home/OTC remedies. If it is thrush, though, be sure to treat your baby, too, even if he doesn't have any symptoms, since he could pass it back to you.

  • You have thrush. Call your OB to get treated right away or it will get way worse and lead to early weaning. Also call your baby's pediatrician and get her treated too or you will just pass the infection back and forth.

  • i had the same thing happen. And also had white spots on my nipples. Went to the doctors and it wasnt thrush. My doctor told me it could jus be from the heat and them staying moist. Try letting them air out and changing breast pads costantley. I walked around topless lol. If it dosent get better within a few days, then definently go to your OB.
