    Default Thrush... Gentain Violet bother any other babies?

    So the little one has thrush... still...
    I've done a round of Nystatin with no results. Now I've done the Gentain Violet and I don't see many spots left - hard to tell b/c his mouth is still totally blue. The GV seems to have turned him into a very cranky (lots and lots of crying) baby. This is very unusual for him. Anyone else have this as a result of using GV? It's supposed to be the natural approach so I figured it'd be better than another round of antibiotics.
    What did you find the most useful treatment for getting rid of thrush?

    My sister gave her son probiotics. I think it was called baby bifidous. It was specifically for babies. I'm pretty sure it cleared it right up. (it was 9 years ago, so I forget in what amount of time).

    Thanks ladies!! GV treatment is done and it seems to have cleared, but the dr. said it could easily come back... apparently some babies have bouts of it until 6 months or so when their immune systems improve. Should be fun...

    if your nursing you can pass it back and forth. You can have it and not really know until its bad and your getting stabbing pains. This what was happening to me and DS the lactation specialist that I trust completely told me to treat it with 2tabs grapefruit seed extract, 2 caps of garlic pills and 30,000 live cultures of acidolphis (sp?) with in 4 days I was better and so was DS.
    Families are like fudge... mostly sweet with a few nuts.
