    Default Are breastfed babies more pone to Thrush?

    Is it because of the sugars in breastmilk?

    If anything, I'd guess that breastfed babies are less prone to thrush than formula-fed ones, but that their moms are more likely to notice when they do get it because the mom may get thrush too and because a nursing mom has frequent reason to check out her baby's mouth when feeding. Breastmilk is full of sugars, true, but so is formula. And the sugars in breastmilk are designed to support healthy oral and gut floras, not yeast overgrowth.
