Re: my baby has a double ear infection (lots of different questions inside)

My son just got over a double ear infection. As recommended by our ped he got a couple bites of yogurt every day and whenever he took his medicine we would rinse his mouth with a little bit of water to prevent thrush.

Re: my baby has a double ear infection (lots of different questions inside)

YDD has had two bilateral ear infections, the first at 5 months then again at 6 months. For the first, I kept her on a Probiotic I found at the health food store in the refrigerated section made especially for young children. It worked great for keeping the yeast away. The second one, I forgot to add the Probiotic and she got both thrush and diaper rash. UGH!! Definitely use either yogart or probiotic and keep using for at least one week after antibiotics are completed to help maintain those norma flora in the gut!

Re: my baby has a double ear infection (lots of different questions inside)

things seem to be going well on day 7 out of 10. She has a pretty bad diaper rash but she has been pooping like every 20 minutes and has always had a sensitive bum after a poop.

How would I know if it was a yeast rash?

We are in sposies just in case and I am LOSING MY MIND! Lots of blowouts and I already ran through an extra pack than expected because she is pooping so much. AHHH!

I would just put probiotics in some of the YoBaby yogurt. We loved that here. And you can buy powdered probiotics at any health store (Akins, etc.) We never had thrush and my son's had more ear infections than I can count.

We don't vaccinate, we kept our sons intact, we use cloth diapers, we co-sleep, we extended RF, we breastfeed, but we watch too much tv and I totally dig plastic! Everyone has their issues, lol.
