Disclaimer:  I am not at all familiar w/good home remedies for treating thrush in infants.  Therefore, I thought I'd explore the Internet and see what I could find.  It's amazing the number of different solutions the human mind can conjure up from Arm & Hammer baking soda to tea tree oil to infant urine (!) to grapefruit seed extract.  I'm not so sure about any of these methods.  Others mentioned using Gentian violet but this should only be used in adults, not infants.  Likewise, honey should not be given to infants to avoid the risk of botulism.  Lots of information of questionable quality is available.  I would suggest sticking to reputable sites such as www. webmd. com.  Good luck!
