Successful treatment is up for debate. A healthy diet low in processed foods, sweets, and no antibiotics helps.

Agree. I was raised on a macrobiotic diet & am still on a modified macro diet. We haven't gotten yeast yet.
I believe it everything has to do with your diet,...but there are always exceptions.

Re: Why are yeast infections so common?

I just thought I'd throw this thought out there. Yeast is in the air. (You can actually catch yeast and make a sourdough starter.) Some people/babies are more susceptible to yeast infections. A male can have a "yeast infection" and have very little effects. Good handwashing is essential as I consider everyone to be infected with yeast. Most people have a good amount of bacteria (the good kind) and ph that the yeast doesn't cause them any ill effects. A baby however may have an overgrowth and that is what a yeast infection is(too much yeast grows and is not kept in check by our bodies natural flora.)
Poor diet, antibiotics, week immune, continued exposure, all factor in.
DD has not had a yeast infection. DS got one at Daycare when he was a baby in sposies. (He got a rash and thrush... There were other kids there with thrush too.)

Re: Why are yeast infections so common?

DS has gotten it twice. Once was in his 2end month and once just recently at 3 years old only wearing nighttime diapers.

This first time around I always blamed it on leaving him in a KL0, cotton fitted, all night. This time I learned that it started with a normal diaper rash, I tried something new and it chaffed him. The yeast then was able to grow in the broken skin.

to prevent. reduce normal diaper rash and keep a good bacterial balance in the system. (using greek yogurt or probiotic, etc)

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.

DD has had yeast only once. I'm not 100% sure why, but at the time I was battling stinky diapers and she had a slight rash for a week or so, then it turned into yeast. She wasn't on antibiotics or sick, so I guess it was from that time period of battling funk.

As soon as the pedi told me it was yeast I bought a pack of sposies and bleached all my diapers. I like sposies during yeast because I don't want to get the prescribed cream on cloth, and also so I don't have to keep treating cloth with every wash. When the rash has been clear for a week I use cloth again, then use bleach or GSE in the wash for a few days to make sure it doesn't reaccur.

There were 2 other times where she started getting red again and I though she had yeast so I bought sposies lol, but it was just irritation.

I was not judging at all. I read your comment as that cloth diapers needed to be sanitized *in general* to prevent yeast, and that it was hard work. I was just sharing that I am too lazy to sanitize diapers & we have had no ill effects LOL. My comment regarding antibiotics was in regard to *other posters comments* that yeast was due to antibiotics. I was in way judging you. I am pretty anti-antibiotics, but have absolutely used them in moderation, when I felt they were warranted.
I have even used disposables. In large quantities. I assure you, I was in no way judging you.

Thanks. I did get 4 non-consecutive hours of sleep last night, so I'm a touch exhausted today and probably overly sensitive

Not every antibiotic causes yeast, but some do, it is a valid question to ask doctors when they are writing a prescription though, because if it can be avoided with probiotics and dietary changes then everyone is better off for it.
