I have thrush and I'm breastfeeding

My ex partner cheated so I went for a full check today, I have to wait for the sti results but I have thrush, I was given meds but does this mean my breastfed daughter has it?

  • My baby had thrush. It looks like cottage cheese on her tongue that won't wipe off. Talk to the doctor, there is a prescription. I believe this is common.

  • Typically baby will have it too. Be aware that thrush is not an STD (not sure if you thought it had anything to do with Mr. Wrong...it doesn't). Best treatments on kellymom.com.

  • most likely considering the infant is the one that spreads thrush to the mother. just get the pedi to prescribe some anti fungal and you''ll both be cleared up in no time
