									Reversing and Preventing Baby Yeast Infection
Baby yeast infection (baby thrush) is a kind of yeast infection that occurs for the most part in infants of two months or even younger, although older
infants may be at risk as well. Infant yeast infection is typically anodyne, although its symptoms may be considerably unpleasant for the infant
concerned.


Yeast infection in babies has few symptoms. Thrush in a baby usually displays as gray or white lacing of coagulation on the oral mucosal surfaces and
the tongue. The behavior of the baby is where initial and strong signs of baby thrush are to be observed. Also, for a baby with this condition, it will
probably refuse to keep the pacifier in its mouth. A baby suffering from this infection may demonstrate mood changes accompanied by irritability,
frustration and annoyment, especially at feeding time.


Different yeast pathogens are usually present in everyone's body in tiny doses, whereas yeast can reproduce itself very fast in a body that is infected.
For example, up to one woman in five when pregnant can suffer from excessive production of yeast. During pregnancy or at time of birth, through the
birth canal, women in this condition can pass the infection to their infant. Babies typically have a weak immune system; they can be affected by this
condition because of these triggering aspects.


Babies can also be infected with yeast because of the following conditions: 1. Antibiotics treatment. Antibiotics interfere with the function of the
immune system and encourage excessive candida growth. 2. The use of dirty bottles or pacifiers. 3. Breastfeeding when the mother has a yeast
infection. 4. Warmness or humidity in the weather.


At the start, infant yeast infection is generally harmless. Nevertheless, its side effects, such as poor feeding and insufficient hydration, can be a reason
for considerable concern. At the initial infection stage, the side effects are often discomfort and problems in sucking or swallowing felt by the baby. In
advanced stages, infant yeast infection can extend through the digestive system and cause diaper rash. In addition, complications related to yeast
infection may cause very pronounced fever, necessitating immediate medical intervention.


The mutual infection caused by breastfeeding of mother and child is yet another problem related to baby thrush. This can be very painful for the
mother and moving the baby to alternate or artificial sources of milk may happen to soon.


Baby yeast infection will often go away by itself without the need for further medical intervention. Nonetheless, if pain and poor feeding are brought on
by a baby's yeast infection, the advice to parents is to consult a pediatrician for the right solution.


In general terms, prevention in advance is the best solution for infant yeast infection. Sterilization of the pacifier and the bottle nipple before use is
recommended by many physicians and paraprofessionals. Certain consultants in lactation suggest rinsing the nipples before feeding and keeping
them rinsed and dry all the time as yeast is encouraged by moist conditions. In any case, a holistic / alternative yeast infection treatment is strongly
advised if the infection recurs.


For babies, my recommendation is to eliminate all candida-provoking foods from your baby's eating (for example, remove all refined carbohydrates
and gluten grains). Moderate amounts of non-gluten grains such as amaranth and quinoa can be given.


Reduction or elimination of red meat, food which is preserved and canned, fruit (other than lemons, limes and cranberries), mold-favoring foodstuffs
such as corn, foods rich in yeast like mushrooms and vinegar (but not Apple Cider Vinegar), dairy produce (above all from cow's milk; goat's milk and
sheep's milk produce can be taken in moderation), caffeine and egg whites.


Give your children anti-Candida and cleansing foods, and at the same time supplement their intake with vitamins and minerals to boost their immune
system, including a daily dose of probiotics, to follow my second recommendation.


A significant positive change in the condition of your baby's yeast infection can be accomplished simply by following these few actions.
