Hoping you Mamas will have some insight into this: DD (20 mos) has been suffering with a yeast infection in her diaper area off and on for a couple of months now. We've tried a couple of different creams and it will get a little bit better, than a little bit worse. And so on. It isn't severe, just enough to be sad and bothersome. I went back to work three days a week about two months ago (around the time this started, give or take) and when she's at the sitter's place she drinks whole milk -- usually two small bottles in eight hours -- and water. When she's with me she nurses and drinks some water, although she will have a bit of milk on cereal, etc. Anyhow, I'm starting to wonder if the yeast (I don't seem to have it) is related to the increased dairy in her diet? I seem to recall reading something about that possibility here at one point (sorry for my faulty memory). I think I would like to try replacing the whole milk with something else to see if it makes any difference, and I'm just wondering what would be best. Goat's milk, perhaps? She's on the slim side, so I would like her to have a full-fat milk when I'm not there to BF her. Thanks for any insight ...

I would deffinitely take away the milk but also not replace it with goats milk.<br><br>
Evidently you can't pump or you would.<br><br>
We use oat water for my grandson when his mom is not here and we are out of bm. He loves it.<br><br>
I make it myself. Soak about 2 cups rolled oats in water, bring to a boil, cool, let set for a few hours, strain. We add a pinch of sea salt. He loves it.<br><br>
You can add some olive oil or whatever dc like.<br><br>
Just a suggestion. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
