First off, do NOT stop breast feeding.

This will NOT solve problem and it will o nly make things worse for baby and you could end up with breast infection. Howev er, I would avoid bottle as much as possible during this time unless that s only w ay baby will eat. You have to then sterilize all the parts over and over again. And any milk you save will have yeast in it even if you freeze so baby can get r einfected. Treat baby and mama at same time to avoid passing back and forth. Yeast replicates every 90 minutes and can be hard as hell to kill. Your immune system normally keeps it dormant and under control. Therefore, babies older than 6 months with established good bacteria and immune systems normally do not have problems with thrush. Even after symptoms disappear, keep treatment going for a t least a week and slowly taper it off. I am an RN. We had thrush for 1 month. I caught it early at 8 weeks old, but my pediatrician didn't believe me so I thought maybe I was wrong. I wasn't and it g ot way worse. Baby never showed symptoms in mouth, only my breasts and his diape r area. I tried everything. The first thing I would do is forget the nystatin un less you believe it's actually working. It only works part of the time if given every 90 minutes (most yeast is resistant to it nowadays), the sugar in it encou rages yeast growth, and it's a pain to give. I researched for hours! First thing, PROBIOTICS- klaire ther-biotic infant formula is best I've found let baby suck off finger twice a day before feeding. babies need mostly bifidus bacteria unlike adults and kids. This is the reason I recommend Klaire Lab Infan t (a pediatrician actually is how I found it). It contains 10 different strains of friendly bacteria at 10 billion per ¼ tsp. It ships pretty fast. However, if yo u want something today, I would find a local health food store that sells supple ments. They should have a quality infant probiotic, although it will probably co ntain less strains and be less concentrated. You can compare the bacteria from t he Klaire, which are: Lactobacillus rhamnosus Lactobacillus casei Lactobacillus paracasei Lactobacillus gasseri Lactobacillus salivarius Bifidobacterium bifidum Bifidobacterium infantis Bifidobacterium lactis Bifidobacterium longum Bifidobacterium breve I would probably double the amount suggested because that is a maintenance dose and you are actually trying to treat a problem. Say give amount suggested twice or three times a day. You cannot overdose on probiotics. Whatever baby body does n t use will be pooped out. If you are giving too much, baby poop will become more diarrhea like. And do NOT go to CVS etc. for probiotics, those might as well be thrown in the garbage because they are worthless. This should be enough treatment for baby if very mild case. However, you can also swab mouth with DILUTED grapefruit seed extract in distill ed water (not grape, it's grapefruit) Nutribiotic Grapefruit Seed Extract is the brand I prefer; it contains Citricidal active ingredient. The pills are only us eful if you take them. You need the concentrated liquid to dilute with distilled water for baby. MUST DILUTE. Here s good article for diluting. Make sure you prevent diaper rash till yeast is gone or it will get on diaper ar ea.
