The way I understand it from doctor and personal experience (also nursed two children), the baby inherits the mothers immune status to some degree. If your own immune system was compromised, or a yeast overgrowth present during pregnancy and birth, this would have been passed to the baby. The thrush is indicative of an inadequate immune system, which all babies have, but those with compromised mothers more so. It would be reasonable to suggest probiotics for the baby and the toddler and (it’s a good rule to live by anyway) a diet low in processed sugars and starches.
