  • ?it is less common for breastfed baby to get thrush? The ONLY babies I know who have gotten it were breastfed and about half my friends formula feed. Thrush does not typically cause "ulcers" but rather a thick white coating on the mouth. But yes they can get ulcers why couldn't they? I would definitely have it checked by a doctor though and get it treated quickly so as not to mess with feeding.
