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.

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

However the brief description you give is not the description of a drug reaction and you did not state where the rash is.

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

Gas & spitting up may not be related, but it seems both of you are uncomfortable. You're a trooper! ...Read more

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? ...Read more
