Breastfeeding and Thrush

While nursing a new baby is supposed to be a special time of closeness for mother and child, breastfeeding complications can quicky interrupt things. One surpisingly common complication is breastfeeding thrush.

 

This condition is caused by a strong fungus—candida albicans—which can overgrow in the body's system and create a major yeast problem for both the mother and her nursing baby. Because the condtion can be passed back and forth between the two, it is important for both mom and baby to receive proper treatment

Whether the thrush begins with the mother or child, common culprits of the candida overgrowth, include:

  • Antibiotic Use—the medication kills off the good bacteria in the body as well as the infection, making it more susceptible to candida overgrowth.
  • High-Sugar Diet—yeast feeds on sugar.
  • Chronic Illness
  • Lowered Immune System
  • Steriod Use
  • Cracked Nipples in the Breastfeeding Mom

In addtion to these possible contributing factors, pregnancy in itself puts the woman at greater risk for a candida condition. Estrogen levels increase during pregnancy, leading to elevated sugar levels in the body. Candida yeast feeds on sugar and can result in yeast infections and thrush.
