Can my baby give me a yeast infection while breastfeeding?

Can my baby give me a yeast infection while breastfeeding?

Yes: Yes, baby can transmit the yeast from its mouth to your breast tissue. In addition, the act of breastfeeding predisposes to yeast infections as tissue that is covered (bra), dark, warm and moist will often yield an infection. Obviously, with breastfeeding, all those things occur and infections are not uncommon. Call your doctor if you feel there is a problem.

I monitstat 1, 3, or 7 better to use for a yeast infection while I am currently breastfeeding?

I monitstat 1, 3, or 7 better to use for a yeast infection while I am currently breastfeeding?

Where's the yeast?: Miconazole is 'probably' OK. We just don't have any evidence that it does anything bad during breastfeeding. But the golden rule for pregnancy and lactation is to use the lowest effective dose and duration. Your GYN (if it's there) or pediatric (if it's up top) should be able to provide guidance. You don't want to undertreat because then you use more in the end. If it's up to lanolin works to

I am taking amoxicillin & breastfeeding, is it possible for my daughter to get a yeast infection from the amoxicillin?

I am taking amoxicillin & breastfeeding, is it possible for my daughter to get a yeast infection from the amoxicillin?

Probably not: Your daughter will only get a fraction of the antibiotic while breasfeeding and should not get a yeast infectiojn from it. You may though. Have some probiotics and yoghurt while on the antibiotic.

I'm breastfeeding my 11 days old baby girl, and I'm taking antibiotics. She has developed a rash that looks like the rash (yeast) due to the above.

I'm breastfeeding my 11 days old baby girl, and I'm taking antibiotics. She has developed a rash that looks like the rash (yeast) due to the above.

Drug reaction: Now I am assuming you think the baby has developed an allergic reaction to the antibiotic. However the brief description you give is not the description of a drug reaction and you did not state where the rash is. Really need more information and better description to assist you

I'm 5 weeks postpartum and breastfeeding. I have a vaginal and breast yeast infection. How should I treat it?

Diflucan (fluconazole): Ask your ostetrician for medication that should treat both breast and vaginal yeast infections. It should only require 1 or2 tablets without any side effects to your infant.

Could I be pregnant if I had sex on my ovulation day (April 3) my last period was March 20. I'm on the paragard, been on it for 7 month. I just stopped breastfeeding last week after 9 months. I've also had a yeast infection, it's gone now, but now I have a

On Guard Paraguard!!: Think of it this way: the failure rate for a Paraguard IUD is about 0.8%, which means only 8 out of 1000 women using it will become pregnant. Pretty damn good. The failure rate of other IUDs is a lot more, up to 2%! Having sex on or shortly before/after ovulation will increase the chances of a sperm snagging an ovum, but still, your chances are pretty good of avoiding a pregnancy, but not 100%.

I am breastfeeding; my C-section incision is infected and has a yeast infection, could this be what is causing my baby to spit up and be extra gassy?

I am breastfeeding; my C-section incision is infected and has a yeast infection, could this be what is causing my baby to spit up and be extra gassy?

I'm so sorry. It's: Great that you're continuing to breastfeed. If the yeast is on your nipples &/or in baby's mouth, please talk to your pediatrician & OB for treatment for both of you. It can be hard to get rid of. Also, call the birth hospital's nursery for the name of a lactation consultant who can help you. Gas & spitting up may not be related, but it seems both of you are uncomfortable. You're a trooper!

Yeast infection on Augmentin while breastfeeding. Safe to take fluconazole with 1d left of antibx? Or Monistat -1, 3 or 7? Taking dexilant, (dexlansoprazole) probiotic

Yeast infection on Augmentin while breastfeeding. Safe to take fluconazole with 1d left of antibx? Or Monistat -1, 3 or 7? Taking dexilant, (dexlansoprazole) probiotic

Safe: Fluconozole is generally considered safe to use during breastfeeding. I would ask your OB/GYN or Family Doctor to make sure they agree with that before taking the medication (did the prescribing doctor realize you were breastfeeding?). Monistat is also safe.

Does nutritional yeast make you bloated?

Does nutritional yeast make you bloated?

Fermentation: It certainly can. Consider that yeast is used to make bread (which rises up from the gas bubbles produced)... and of course beer which has all those bubbles! So if you're consuming yeast - I would expect 'gas' to form in your GI tract and created the bloated symptoms you're feeling. Why not take a break from the yeast and see if it goes away?
