    Default Thrush. Can it change BM or is this normal.

    Hi all,

    My DS is 3 months old. I just started having nipple pain and noticed his mouth is "thrushy". I also noticed a change in his BM couple of weeks. He is going for 3 days then saving it up for me for about a week. It's thicker and less milk solids noticed and the thrush seems to have made it look a little like sourdough starter. Is the other stuff normal? I don't remember this with DS #1 but he pooed 2x a day for a year.

    THanks
    Amy

    It's normal for an EBF baby your son's age to store poops for days at a time. I think the "sourdough starter" look may be connected to the yeast; if it's in his mouth, then it is in his digestive tract, and some thrush moms do report a yeasty smell to their baby's diapers.

    Are you treating the thrush? Good luck with resolving it quickly.
