    Default Thrush ?

    Hmm I'm wondering if DD may have some thrush. Her tongue has a white coating on it..mind you, she still gets some formula supplement and that can cause a white coating as well, but since last night she has been rooting around and then will pull off either breast and also will spit her binky right out even after acting like she wants it. She also cries a little when she does this.
    She was recently on antibiotic for 10 days, too.
    Just wondering if it warrants a call to the ped or if I should just go ahead and get the ole Gentian Violet going.

    yep, that's what I'm thinking. I can't see any white patches in her mouth like my son used to get, but there is the definite white coating on her tongue..AND a few days ago I had a clogged duct. I hate that Nystatin liquid, though..it just doesn't seem to work that well
