Gentian Violet worked for us, but after I used it I heard that it is a carcinogen, so, I threw my little bottle away. And I've felt guilty ever since. ugg
Thrush is a yeast infection so you can treat it with the same natural remedies.
I would try YOU (mommy) taking acidophilus pills and or eating lots of live active yogurt (to make sure you don't have it/get it) and get nystatin for the bebe. Put live active yogurt on your nipples in case you do have it, that will help clear your ducts and also give your baby a little extra help too.
Also, in order to get the nystatin you'll see a dr who can tell you for sure if you have thrush or not (a thick white tongue isn't uncommon in breast fed kids, and that's the number one 'symptom' of thrush).
