can I use cloth if baby has oral thrush?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

DD is 6 weeks - we had planned to start cloth when she was ~1month, she has been in sposies since birth.

She was diagnosed with oral thrush 3 weeks ago & has had no change (we're treating it, but still trying to figure out a remedy).

She has no symptoms of a yeast diaper rash & I have no symptoms of thrush on my breasts - it is only in her mouth.

So, can I cloth diaper her or do I risk getting yeast in the diapers?  I don't really want to deal with yeasty dipes as I see it is hard to remove.  But, I am tired of using sposies!  What would you do?

We use cloth exclusively and had a wicked case of thrush a few years ago and it never spread to the diaper area. So I think you are fine to switch.

I had no idea on this,. but if my DD will be in same boat as yours I will ask the ped just to make sure, if its okey. Goodluck!
