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'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
