Yeast Infection Home Remedies for Babies
Diet plays an important part in treating and preventing yeast infections. If a baby is young enough to still be only ingesting breast milk look to the mom as she probably has a yeast infection too. Cut down on sugars and carbs. As yeast loves sugar, changing your and your baby's diet in this way will help get rid of over active yeast?
Yeast can also present itself as thrush which looks like a white coating in the mouth. You can give your baby yogurt if he/she is over six months old which will help get rid of the yeast.
Fingernails that are red and sore looking may be the sign of a yeast infection. Apply coconut oil or plain yogurt to the affected area and work to keep baby from sucking on her fingers. The goal is to dry out the area so the yeast can not thrive.
Finally, if baby is old enough to be wearing underwear and has a yeast infection. Make sure to wash the underwear in hot water and vinegar before putting them back on baby. You don't want the yeast in the underwear to infect your baby again.
