    Yeast / thrush?
    ButterflyBaby1107 posted:
    I have been totally exhausted because my baby is very fussy and then all the stress of christmas. This week we have been having a really hard time. My baby is just about two months old and has been more fussy than usual and I have been having trouble feeding her. She only wants to eat a tiny bit at a time and seems to want to eat all the time. I noticed that she does have a white patch on the back of her tongue. I am afraid that we are developing a case of thrush. Now today I feel like I am getting a yeast infection, and my right breast is sore and both my nipples feel itchy/burning. Are there any natural remedies or cures for this? I am hoping it gets better before the holidays arrive!

    Hi ButterflyBaby1107. I've breastfed 3 babies and only 2 of them got thrush. The naturaly remedy I used to get rid of my babies thrush within a weeks time or shorter is......YOGURT. Yes! Plain yogurt. You can go here to find more info about how to use yogurt to treat thrush: . It's really easy and simple!
