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

This ^^^^^
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.

My son gets yeasty poo after family events where he eats different foods and lots of sweets. Day to day I make sure to give him yogurt and keep it as healthy and simple/whole food as possible. He has a bit of a sensitive tummy but diet has really been the main factor for Keeping it under control. But I know of kids in sposies that battle it as well, it's different for everyone.
