Thrush

I am pretty sure my 12 day old has thrush. Her tongue has a thick layer of white, her inner lips have white blotches and so do her gums. At first, a few days ago, I thought it was just milk residue but it's getting worse and spreading in her mouth.
I read a little on it but I have never dealt with this. I know it can clear up on it's own but my breast can reinfect her and the bacteria can pass back n forth between breast and mouth...plus I am tandem nursing my 22 month old and I am worried about her getting it too!

What do I do???
