   Hi everyone I just found out my baby has Thrush and I have medicine to rub on his mouth I'm confused I clean his bottles and boil the nipples. I was told its a yeast infection how does a baby get this and would it come back. Anyone's child ever had this? Thanks All

Could come from his bottle or his milk. I could come from being on medication such as antibiotics. My third son had a case of thrush. Hope your baby is better soon.

Some kids have more yeast in their bodies. Its not serious :) the medicine works pretty quickly. if you're breastfeeding at all, make sure you treat your nipples also

Meh it happens, my friend's youngest had thrush, she was Breast Fed.  It was a pain to get rid of, but she did ok with it

Sometimes it happens. No big deal, just use the medication your doctor prescribed.

My daughter had thrush!! It was horrible. She didn't get enough lactose in her diet...which caused the yeast to build up. She was lactose intolerant. So there wasn't anything I could do. I did buy Genitian Violet (sp?). I had a purple baby but it treated the issues.

My daughter did to when she was a few weeks old and she hasnt got it back since. You should wash everything she has used every time she uses it and be very careful cuz anyone can catch it. It usually happens if you baby is on formula

and   if you are using a cotton swab dont re use it in the botle cuz you will contaminate the bottle. different cotonsswab for every swipping
