Take 8oz water and add 1/4 tsp baking soda and 1 drop of liquid dish soap. mix well in a container. Dab corner of cloth in solution and wipe on infant's tounge 4-6 times a day. Do this until thrush has disappeared. This works!!!

Dishwashing Liquid! Thats the craziest thing I ever heard. Comments By: Karen Alexandre on 2006-10-17
All you have to do is go to the nearest health food store and buy "GLYCERIN". Take a cotton ball and wrap it over your finger tip. Put glob of glycerin on the cotton and clean your baby's tongue and gums. Glycerin is natural and taste very sweet. It is completely eatable.

If the baby is being breastfed, the mother should also treat herself. Rub vinegar and water on nipples, and let it dry. Sometimes the dad needs to be treated also, as the infection is passed around the family, and yeast infections are less noticeable in men. For the baby, I always left out the soap - it worked just fine.
