Re: Stringy/Mucos looking milk???
I've never heard of stringy milk being a symptom of thrush, but it's actually a pretty common occurrence with breastfeeding in general. A lot of moms expect that their milk will look like the milk they get from the store- but milk from the cow has been filtered, pasteurized, and homogenized before it gets to the shelf. Milk straight from the cow often has strings or clumps in it (also cow hair ).
Strings/clumps/mucus can be a symptom of plugged ducts or mastitis, or it can be normal. And, as the PP said, baby's saliva mixing with the milk can make it look a little funny.
