There really isn't. Thrush is just a yeast infection in the mouth.

Yup, agreed, but if you have a yeast infection of your breast your baby may get thrush and vice versa, both need to be treated

Agree w/ both.  And yeast infections of the breast are very painful.  So both should be treated so you aren't passing it back and forth also.

Thanks.  My LC told me to use coconut oil on my breast until they heal. So far its not as painful
