My son had thrush when he was about a month, he had white spots all over his mouth and was very irritable, wanted to eat constantly because it soothed the pain. I would call his doctor and have him checked before it gets too bad, you'll both be treated if he has it, good luck!

Here is an article by Dr. Jack Newman, a guru in the breastfeeding world.  (http://www.nbci.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=73:using-gentian-violet&catid=5:information&Itemid=17)  You can treat thrush at home with Gentian Violet and it works pretty well.  If you are concerned I would take him into your pediatrician, he will give you something for the baby, I've just found that Gentian Violet will help with your breast pain best.
Good luck!
