Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, with another
frequently asked question regarding yeast infection. Is breastfeeding possible when I have a yeast
infection? Absolutely, there’s no reason why you should
discontinue breastfeeding if your child or you have a yeast infection. I would advise
you, though, not to take antibiotics if you’re breastfeeding. I’ve seen too many cases of
children developing allergies and digestive-related issues and yeast infection while the mother
was taking an antibiotic. So it’s not a good idea. I would recommend that you include garlic
in your diet or organa oil and the various other products I recommend in my book, Candida
Crusher, particularly in Chapter 7, Section 4. You can read all about the special foods.
There are many special foods that you can consume which will really help to counter
your yeast infection when you’re breastfeeding. So there’s no reason why you should abstain
from breastfeeding if you or your infant do have a yeast infection. Thank you.
