Is A Yeast Infection Possible While Breast Feeding
Good day, Eric Bakker again from Candida Crusher,another FAQ. This one's number 24. Is a yeast infection possible while breastfeedingand what are the best ways to tackle a yeast infection if I am breastfeeding? Well, you can still breastfeed. It shouldn'tmake 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 advicefor you is to include plenty of the foods which have an antifungal effect, includinggarlic, coconut, oregano products, these are all antifungal. I don't like women takingantibiotics when breastfeeding. It can have
quite a serious effect on the child. You canpass the drug through the breast milk and create a lot of gut issues and leaky gut andfood allergies in the baby, and I've seen this on numerous occasions. So please refrainfrom antibiotics when breastfeeding. You'll just aggravate the baby and make it a lotworse for yourself. So it's best to tackle quite a strong killand 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 becareful taking certain dietary supplements when breastfeeding. And if in doubt, justask 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, Omega3, so highfat foods are quite good,they're very nourishing for the baby and help to calm and relax the child. High proteinfoods 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, butI've not really seen that to be a problem. Alcohol is obviously not a good idea, butjust beware of those antibiotics. They're not really a good idea if you're breastfeeding.
So, yes it is possible to breastfeed whenyou have a yeast infection. Thank you.
