Hello sb mama,

  I moved your thread to Breastfeeding because this forum is more appropriate for the topic.

Thank you,

I would either try a google search (might not be ur best bet tho) or ask babys pedestrian. I'm pretty sure I've used the monistat prefilled things while BFing. And maybe give baby probiotics, specifically for infants, cuz if u have a yeast infection, u can pass it or thrush to LO
