I am naturally prone to Yeast Infections so Thrush while nursing for me is like a given. I battled it 3-4 times with my daughter and with my son (before I switched to bottles).


I started when my baby was about three months old...I got a gum brush from walmart pharmacy...I read somewhere that baby gum health is super important and can prevent thrush if you clean after feedings ect...but i didn't use the paste until after solids were introduced i was afraid it would upset his tummy so I used water to rinse and brush his gums
