Is A Yeast Infection Possible While Breast Feeding?

August 14, 2019

Good day, Eric Bakker again from Candida Crusher,
another FAQ. This one’s number 24. Is a yeast infection possible while breastfeeding
and what are the best ways to tackle a yeast infection if I am breastfeeding? Well, you can still breastfeed. It shouldn’t
make any difference at all if you’re going to breastfeed and you do have a yeast infection,
and it certainly shouldn’t be a reason for you to stop breastfeeding either. A good advice
for you is to include plenty of the foods which have an anti-fungal effect, including
garlic, coconut, oregano products, these are all anti-fungal. I don’t like women taking
antibiotics when breastfeeding. It can have quite a serious effect on the child. You can
pass the drug through the breast milk and create a lot of gut issues and leaky gut and
food allergies in the baby, and I’ve seen this on numerous occasions. So please refrain
from antibiotics when breastfeeding. You’ll just aggravate the baby and make it a lot
worse for yourself. So it’s best to tackle quite a strong kill
and dietary program when you’re not breastfeeding, but you can still maintain breastfeeding,
have the right kind of foods, which reduce the yeast population, but you’ll need to be
careful taking certain dietary supplements when breastfeeding. And if in doubt, just
ask your naturopathic physician. He certainly should be able to help you. Some good breastfeeding foods include: tahini,
avocado, flax seed oil is another good one, Omega-3, so high-fat foods are quite good,
they’re very nourishing for the baby and help to calm and relax the child. High protein
foods are good as well. I can’t see any reason why you should abstain from chili or garlic.
Many people say not to have cabbage. These foods cause bloating and gas in a baby, but
I’ve not really seen that to be a problem. Alcohol is obviously not a good idea, but
just beware of those antibiotics. They’re not really a good idea if you’re breastfeeding. So, yes it is possible to breastfeed when
you have a yeast infection. Thank you.

    The question was – 'Is it possible to have yeast infection while breastfeeding?' Not the other way round.

    Also, it would be nice if you could tell us more about how to get rid of nipple/breast thrush while breastfeeding. Baby an d mother can pass it on to each other and it can go round in circles.
