In brief: Thrush

It sounds like your baby may have a condition called thrush.
It is a yeast infection in the mouth, commonly occurring up to age 6 months. When on the tongue, it can resemble milk, but thrush also appears on the inside of the cheeks, lips, and gums. There are some prescription anti-fungal medications which can treat it. Please check with your baby's doctor.
