With my last baby, I had constant yeast infections while pregnant. C-section and newborn had ongoing thrush issues (born with a diaper rash). I went on to have recurrent mastitis. Every time I needed antibiotics and everytime we got thrush again.
This baby I had not yeast issues while pregnant. He is almost four months and has had not diaper rash. I have been on antibiotics tons (another c-section, bladder infection from the catheter and four bouts of mastitis). I don't see any symptoms of thrush (or yeast overgrowth) on me or baby (no diaper rash, nothing in his mouth, on my nipples, no yeast infection for me). Is it possible that all of those antibiotics could not cause yeast? My nipple on the side that always gets mastitis is a little sore but I always attributed that to the mastitis.
(I am especially sensitive because last baby ended up with Autism. There is the whole, very political, yeast-overgrowth Autism theroy. We are so worried about the new baby b/c Autism has been shown to have a genetic component.)
I am eating lots of yogurt, try to go bra-less, just in case.
Thanks for any thoughts.
