It sounds like you have a very serious yeast infection to which avoiding sugar will not be enough. You need to go on a total candida regimen, no sugar, no refined carbs (white flour, white rice, white anything), no yeast products (bread with yeast), mushrooms, cheese, red meat, dairy etc...
Also, you need to take something to kill the yeast. Caproil, Grapefruit seed extract, etc....or you can even get a prescription from the doc for something called Nystatin I think it is.
There is a great product called "Yeast Busters" by a company called Inno-vite, I did the program for 3 months and got rid of my yeast problems, no more psoriasis, no more pimples, etc...
Formula is very expensive, rather than switching to that, spend the few hundred dollars you'd spend on that, and go to a good naturopathe to help you with the yeast issue.
Yeast causes so many problems it's important to nip it in the butt, it causes leaky gut, mal-absorption of nutrients, psoriasis, arthritis, digestive disorders, acne, and the list goes on.
For probiotics, get a live probiotic, one that you buy in the fridge section of the health food store, there's one called Bio-k that is excellent.... alot of the probiotic pills don't work.
Weaning won't help your child's yeast problems, because if she is yeasty now, she has an infection too, probably the sugar in the formula will be worse for her than the yeast in your breastmilk. Better to find a way to kill the yeast in your body and your childrens'
