What is the over the counter medicine some moms recommend for thrush in babies?

I saw a post yesterday about an over the counter medication that some moms have used to combat thrush in their babies. My daughter is almost 4 months old. Any suggestions?

  • you can also use gentian violet. There's no way I'd put Clortrimazole in my baby's mouth, I don't care what Dr. Sears' website says.
