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. ...Read more

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 ...Read more

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 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! ...Read more

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? ...Read more

Is nutritional yeast healthy? I hear it has a flavor sort of like cheese. I love cheese. I overeat it & it can kick off a binge. Need alternative.

Eat pickled food: Yeast is the normal bacteria found in breads, yogurts, cheese etc that provide natural probiotics. An alternative to cheese like products is to eat other naturally occurring live food that cultures have enjoyed for many years such as Kim-chee, pickled veggies and fruit found in many Asian markets or visit your local health food store and ask them for advice. ...Read more

Can you overdose on nutritional yeast, I put like a cup in my vegetables and I have tummy ache, will I be poisoned, is it toxic?

Everything in...: Everything in moderation, is one of life's rules. Nobody really knows what's in a bottle labeled "nutritional yeast". It could be yeast, but may have a variety of other stuff in it. Who knows? Realize that a person can overdose on water, if he drinks too much at one time. The key to living better and living longer, is everything in moderation. ...Read more
