6 week old baby and thrush

Posted by Robin Pollan on June 20, 2000 at 14:48:44:

My nephew is 6 weeks old and has thrush, he gets NOTHING but breast milk...how is this possible??? My sister-in-law has not taken any anti-biotics and I was just wondering how he got it. Does this mean he has a tendancy for LGS?

Hi, Robin.

Your nephew needs his mouth painted with gentian violet. The only problem with this is that it will permanently (a month or so) stain her breasts purple. This is the tried and true and cheap solution to the problem.

IF this means that he also has it in his gut (at this age the problem is most likely due to dysbiosis and NOT to LGS). The best thing is to give him adult doses of live acidophilus and consider adult doses of the Nystatin powder for a few weeks. Most clear up just with the painting which is done in the office just once.

Thanks for the help, I will pass on the info about the violet to my sister-in-law. After reading your answer, however, I have another question. My nephew developed pretty bad gas and constipation (even though he has the typical runny breast-fed baby stool) at about 2 weeks old. Like I said before, he gets nothing but breast milk. Would giving him the acidophilus help his gas and constipation?

When I was breast feeding my son, he had terrible gas, and seemed in awful pain. I called the advice nurse and she said "what are you eating" I told her a lot of salad with romaine lettuce and fish. She said the salad is causing your baby to have gas. I stopped the salad and my son was fine. The baby gets what the mother eats. Hope it is helpful to you.

Hi, Robin.

Almost certainly (within a few days of starting it)!

Let us know the "miraculous" results.

Hi, Solace.

Thanks.

Of course this IS a possibility. If the acidophilus does not resolve the symptoms within a few days, they will have to look into this.
