Re: Why are yeast infections so common?

I have been cloth diapering for most of 22 years. I never,ever disinfected my diapers. My only child who got yeast was just sickly to begin with (the only time he got antibiotics was on the 2 occasions that he almost died, but he already had horrible thrush when he took them, no yeast was caused from them). I don't bleach my diapers, I generally only use eco laundry detergent. I have never thought of cloth diapering as being a lot of work. Maybe we are just lucky,though!
