Children with thrush can drink milk, but when you drink milk, you need to pay attention. Because there are lots of white patches in the oral mucosa of children with thrush. Although it doesn’t hurt or itch, the children will feel very uncomfortable when the milk stimulates the patches. So don’t force your baby to drink milk. You can drink it slowly. In addition, the bottle and nipple should be cleaned and disinfected to avoid multiple infection of pathogenic bacteria and aggravation of the disease.
In fact, many children have thrush because they don’t pay attention to it when they drink milk. Here, the mother’s responsibility is the biggest. In order to avoid thrush caused by Candida albicans infection, mothers can use soda water to wipe and disinfect the bottle nipple and nipple before feeding.
Children with thrush also need to do a good oral cleaning, which can inhibit the growth of mold in the mouth. In particular, Candida albicans, which causes thrush, is very sensitive to a weak alkaline environment, so mothers can wash their children’s mouths with about 2% soda water every day.
It’s hard for a child to suffer from thrush when his mouth is swollen, but he can’t do without milk. If he doesn’t eat milk, his weight will increase slowly, and even affect his development. So there should be some control over the time when feeding. For example, it is better to control the time of a feeding within 20 minutes. The time should not be too long, otherwise the child will be very uncomfortable.
After thrush, apply glycerin containing nystatin around the child’s mouth every day, 3 to 5 times a day, and 2 to 3 times a day for children with mild symptoms.
