Everyone's experiences and medical decisions for their families are going to vary. I am a single working mother to two small children, I have a hard time keeping up and really dislike disinfecting when we get yeast and don't want my children to suffer from a reoccurrence., I'm not sure why but I am feeling judged by your comment, like it is wrong for me to give my child medication and not want to deal with yeast infected diapers? When my son gets his prescription the doctor prescribes alongside it nystatin and probiotics because it is known to cause yeast. he is allergic to many medications, and if I'm juggling work and sick kids it is easier for me to do disposables for a few days, what's so wrong with that? Not all antibiotics cause yeast (reframprocin for TB never gave my daughter a problem in 9 months on it, during which time she was in cloth, even during her surgery she was in cloth! ) but others antibiotics do. I've only been blessed with my children for four years, but I still feel that is enough experience to weigh in on this question. I can only hope that the health of our family will be as fortunate as yours has in the future, having nearly lost my daughter 2 years ago, I am feeling blessed that DSs biggest challenge has been 2 ear infections in 2 years! DD will suffer the rest of her life from immune system problems, but you'd never know it if you met her!
Ive never had to deal with my kids having yeast (knock on wood). But I agree with you about bleach. If I did deal with yeast in cloth dipes, I would bleach them for sure. The times I have used bleach (mainly buying used diapers), I rinse them several times. It is a lot of "work" imo to make sure the water runs clear and free of bubbles. Normally when I use even a small amt of bleach I have to wash one extra time and rinse an extra time as well. My old washer was not like that. It could wash and rinse everything easily bc it filled to the brim. The one i have now is the size of a post it note. To me, it is a lot of work...same as prepping is a lot of work.
I'm Tia... and I love my family so much they should pay rent in my mind
