to prevent. reduce normal diaper rash and keep a good bacterial balance in the system. (using greek yogurt or probiotic, etc)
LO has never been on antibiotics and when yeast started she was ebf. I just recently figured this out. I have been bleaching diapers for months b/c it kept coming back. It all started when I switched to a "green" detergent because I read Tide was bad for CD. Well that was a mistake. The dipes were not getting clean and causing irritation which made a place for yeast to grow. We are back on Tide. Her ped said it was more common in chubby babies.
