Thrush

What causes thrush in my babies mouth?

It' s the second time she has it (8 months), yet my son (5 years) has never had it before

I don' t know what I' m doing wrong

Hallo Anon
some babies get it more easily than others. It is caused by a yeast called Candida. It may be your sterilizer - if you are using Milton, try the other brand ( the pink one - I can't remember the name!)and ensure that you sterilize her bottles correctly. You can use Daktarin oral jel or Mycostatin drops for it
