Hi all, my dd is 21 weeks and has thrush, the thing is I can't understand how. I feel like an unclean mum because I've read its due to poor hygiene, but I steralise all her bottles and dummies and clean her favourite toys regularly. Has anybody elses baby got this? worried mum x

I should add to the above, my dd has oral thrush.

It's very common. A lot of times it comes from birth. Mason had a horrid case of it and we were very careful too. Don;t be worried, it's not your fault. :)

Two of my children had it when they were babies...do they still give them that horrid purple medicine that stains everything? I remember reading somewhere on the web yesterday about thrush and it said to rinse their stuff in a vinegar/water solution while they have it and for 10 days after to prevent reinfection.

Hi what is thrush? I've never heard of it.

It's an overgrowth of yeast that occurs in the mouth and throat.

My son had it at three months, but I think it was because I was on an Antibiotic b/c I had a tooth infection and needed a root ca___l. It can be from anything. It does not mean you are unclean. Where you or was he on any medicine? Cause I know that's one main thing that causes it.

Sorrry, I was referring to your daughter as a he. I am just used to my son. Sorry about that.

My daughter had thrush for 2 months. The medicine WOULD NOT WORK!! i stopped giving it to her because it gave her awful tummy aches and it went away eventually.....Then she got a string of yeast infection diaper rashes (same as thrush but on her a__s) My dr said some babies are just more prone to it. I did everything right as well (sterilizing, changing dirty/wet diapers immediatly) Its just something that happens. Dont worry
