Hi. I just wanted to encourage you to take a look at everything that could be causing this before you decide it's thrush (unless, of course, you look in your babies mouth and it's definately thrush) before you start on medication. I had the textbook definition of thrush for 3 months...only it ended up not being thrush and both me and my dd ended up being on medication unnecessarily. It turned out I had sensitive nipples, dry nipples, an overactive letdown (OALD), an oversupply of milk AND even though latch looked great, my dd was not sucking (using her tongue) properly.

People had great ideas and suggestions here! Check them all out and good luck!

S.
