Q&A: How Does A Baby Get Thrush?

How does a baby get thrush?

Babies usually get thrush from moms. Thrush loves to grow in a warm, dark,moist environment and since the nipples are usually in this state, it’s easy tosee how thrush can thrive there and become a problem. If the baby has beenon an antibiotic, it is possible that he could develop thrush on his own. But since the baby’s mouth is often on the mom’s nipple, the cause is usually through breastfeeding.
