Thrush?

How do you know if you have thrush?

I noticed these white spots on the roof of Annamarie's mouth about 10 days ago, it hasn't gotten any worse though really.

The only other thing would be after we nurse for a while, sometimes I get this kind of shooting pain inside my breast. I guess I would describe it as if she's been nursing and I'm running dry and she's sucking from a dry duct. I don't know if that's possible, but that's how I would describe the feeling. And it only happens after we've been nursing for probably 10 minutes on one side. The pain does subside after awhile after we're done though.

Here's a picture of her spots. It's the blotchy section in the middle.

Re: Thrush?

Oh thank you! I was so worried, this whole thing is so new to me! I didn't know thrush could be scraped off, I've been googling it now and no where did I see that mentioned.
