Hello ladies.... I am a new mom to a beautiful 2 week old baby girl:) I noticed today that her tongue was a little white so I tried to wipe it off but only a little came off (my son never had this so I don't know what it coould be) so I looked online and I found that it could be thrush?? But I wash and boil her bottles so how could she get this, if it is thrush...and also I read it goes away on itself or by meds...so my question is should I wait the weekend and see how she does or should I take her in the morning to her doctor, any advice plz! But she don't seem like she in pain or anything....

I would take her to the doctor. At the wic the lady told me it is best to take the baby to doctor if they would get thrush.

I thought my lad had thrush on his tongue but he didn't, it was a build up of breast and formula milk. He never had any of the thrush symptoms either, just whiteness on tongue that wouldn't clean off. I'd let a health visitor or gp have a look if your unsure :) good luck x

Get her checked out. Sometimes it'll go away but from my experience a lot of the time it doesn't and it can become painful and then baby won't want to drink.
