- Your baby may be fretful, windy and more difficult to settle
- Your baby may be reluctant to feed as their mouth is sore
- You may notice white patches on your baby’s tongue and sides of their mouth
- Your baby may also have a nappy rash
If you are taking a medicine called warfarin, DO NOT use Miconazole cream. Contact your GP for further advice. If baby has signs of thrush and you do not (and you are breastfeeding), you must get treatment for yourself.
IF THE PAIN STILL PERSISTS IN BOTH BREASTS AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED TREATMENT, YOU WILL NEED TO SEE YOUR GP FOR FURTHER ADVICE.
More information can be obtained via NHS Choices www.nhs.uk/conditions/oral-thrush-in-babies/
If you're still worried please contact your local Health Visitor.
