Well, if that's so, I need to know what I can do to prevent it. DS is on antibiotic to treat pneumonia.
Don't ask me how he got pneumonia. Nobody in the house has been sick since his birth. Since he's been coughing and hacking, we're all getting tiny colds. It's madness here.
Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
I'd probably put it on me rather than dissolve it in water for baby.
If you can digest dairy products, I would go for a yogurt with live cultures. If you can't, like me, take acidophilus and other lacto-bacilli in capsules. My midwife had me take like 6 capsules a day! I would rather eat the yogurt, if I could.

The ped said no go on giving baby acidophilus because he's so small. Unfortunately, dh was on his way home from grocery shopping when I decided I needed stuff for this, so we'll have to make another run in the morning for acidophilus and yogurt for me. I'll just drink the acidophilus and use it in my oatmeal. I can eat yogurt. Woohoo!
Thanks for the support, ladies. I'm beat...but it's nice to have a network of knowledgeable mommies to turn to. Baptism is Sunday and we're having family over for lunch. I'm going to make them all wear dark glasses so they can't see the dirt in my house!
The kind we used when we were trying to get rid of thrush was Country Life Maxi Baby-dophilus, which comes as a powder in a jar, no messing around with breaking open capsules. I think it may also come as a liquid.
I would definitely feel no qualms about using probiotics to ward off thrush in my baby.
