    Thrush has to scraped you can’t wipe it. Sounds like formula.

    She doesn’t have thrush.

    With thrush, you wouldn’t be able to wipe off the white stuff. If you do manage to scrape it off you’ll notice very red, irritated areas and often blood.

    Then it’s probably NOT thrush. I’m sure it’s just formula. Thrush does not come off when wiped, it has to be scraped or scrubbed, and it will be bloody when it is scraped. We had the same concern with our baby boy, ad it wound up being nothing. One thing that we learned when our now 2-year old was an infant is that your pediatrician will not mind if you call them for anything and everything. It’s better to be safe than sorry and seek the guidance of professionals until you know better how to respond to such situations on your own.

    Now, get off of Yahoo! Answers, call your pediatrician and take care of your baby!

    It sounds like it’s just the formula. My daughter had the same thing, but with breast milk. I was wondering if it was thrush, too. The dr said it’s just her milk.
