Natural Approach to Treating Thrush

The good news is that it will usually go away on its own within a few weeks, but in the meantime you can speed healing by:

  • boiling any pacifiers and bottle nipples for 20 minutes after each use to sterilize them
  • dab a little acidophilus on the spots in his/her mouth, or
  • dissolve 1/8 teaspoon of lactobacillus bifidus in his/her bottle

If you are breastfeeding:

  • take probiotics
  • supplement with vitamin c
  • avoid sugar (very important since yeast lives on sugar)
