Is this thrush??? I have pictures lol
 
Ok, my son is 6m old.. and we arent having any nursing problems.. other than easily distracted by his big sister... and a little bit of teething..

but I have noticed these white patches on both sides of his mouth... it wont rub off not easily anyway... ( not like I can get in there and scrub it lol ) so it was all I could do to get a picture of the inside of these fat ol' cheeks lol... so tell me... do you think it's thrush?

Looks like it. If it isn't bothering you or him I don't know that I would bother treating it, though.

I would say yes! My son (Mason, ds#1) had it when he was a baby. It took a while before I even noticed he had it. In fact, I didn't notice he had it until I started having a TON of pain when we were nursing. (He was my first, and I didn't know what thrush was!)

I would hurry and treat it before it spreads to you and gets worse. Also, make sure you disinfect EVERYTHING!

Yup, that's definitely thrush. DS had it ALL OVER his mouth when he was born and it took us almost 2 months to get rid of it all. :yuck:
