topical antibiotics and thrush...

Should you give probiotics when you give your baby topical antibiotics to prevent thrush?

It can't hurt for you to take probiotics yourself to help prevent thrush, I am not sure about giving it directly to baby.

I give my 3am old probiotics by putting a small amount on my nipple before I feed him. Probiotics are always good for babies... Especially with thrush, colic or gas.

I have heard good things about this. We only had a thrush issue for a few weeks, but I personally could have done without it!!

Re: topical antibiotics and thrush...

So far I haven't because I hate pumping and he will only take probiotics if I hide them in a bottle of my milk. It has to be a bottle. With oral antibiotics I have always given him prodiotics two hours after he takes the antibiotics. I also give him probiotics when I take antibiotics. I asked my ped the first time I took antibiotics when DS was 2 months old and he was fine with it. Since topical antibiotics aren't going to effect his digestive system I am drinking a lot of keifer and hoping for the best.
