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.
