|If you use oral Nystatin, cut the prescribed dose in half and apply it to your baby’s tongue and cheeks every 3 hours. Most prescriptions for Nystatin are written with instructions to apply it to the baby’s mouth every 6 hours and this is not frequent enough. Yeast has the ability to replicate in 90 minutes, so more frequent application of the Nystatin will give the yeast less opportunity to grow. Remember to continue with applications every 3 hours throughout the night. Continue treatment for 1 week after all signs of thrush are gone from your baby’s mouth. Probiotics (like Bifidophilus Flora Force) given before feedings will be very helpful in replenishing the good bacteria in your baby’s digestive system.|
