Diaper rash, cloth diapers, and breastfeeding - what you need to know

Diaper rash
Most Viewed Articles

(NaturalNews) When babies develop diaper rashes, the first assumption is that the baby is not being changed often enough or quickly enough after wetting or soiling the diaper. If this is not the case, the diapers are questioned – especially when using cloth diapers. Diapers are boiled and/or hung outside to dry in the sun or Mom gives up her quest for environmentally friendly, inexpensive cloth diapers and switches to disposables. Nursing mothers rarely stop to think about their diet. Unfortunately, what they ate probably caused the rash.

If Mama has systemic Candida, does her baby?

If you are a nursing mother and your baby suffers from diaper rashes, pay strict attention to your diet or start a food journal. You will find those diaper rash outbreaks, and most any other health issues that arise, will perfectly coincide with poor diet choices.

A Candida overgrowth causes a painful, ugly diaper rash. Sugar feeds Candida.

Disposable or cloth diapers?

While disposable diapers may help you avoid diaper rashes since they wick moisture away from the skin, they are toxic, not just to the environment, but also to your baby.

Cloth diapers provide an incredible service to you. Cloth diapers and diaper rashes let you know when you need to adjust your diet or your baby's diet because rashes are an excellent indicator that something unhealthy is occurring inside your baby's body. If your child has enough Candida, or other fungi, in his or her system to explode into a diaper rash as soon as wet, moist conditions appear, you better believe your baby's gut is not in the best shape. And if you are breastfeeding, that means your gut is in bad shape, too. You need to get rid of the Candida in your body and eat the best possible diet to ensure your baby receives the same.

If your child is eating solid foods, eliminate all refined sugar and make sure both of you are eating a perfect diet. If you think you are doing everything right but still have this problem, look for hidden sugars – too much fruit (in proportion to vegetables and herbs like garlic), breads, cereals, white rice, pasta, and juices (even fresh, homemade pressed juices) can be a problem, especially while you are trying to kill off Candida. Some of these foods can be eaten sparingly while breastfeeding when taking certain supplements to balance the gut flora, after the gut is brought back to a healthy state.

What is the best diet for a healthy gut?

The best diet all around is the 80% raw diet without processed or refined foods. In this diet, eighty percent of your diet is comprised of raw, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, more vegetables than fruit. This is a fiber rich, prebiotic diet that supports gut heath. Good bacteria thrive and automatically balance out Candida, bad bacteria, and parasites.

For a truly healthy diet and to ensure you are feeding your baby a truly healthy diet, you should never eat processed sugar (and most of it is now GMO), any other GMO foods (which kill beneficial bacteria in the gut), MSG, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. Avoid all processed foods. Eat real, whole foods. Make sure you include plenty of clean water and healthy fats in your diet.

Sauerkraut and other fermented foods are wonderful foods to include in your diet that have many benefits, but they are typically not the best choice for a probiotic because stomach acid kills most of the bacteria.

How to Kill Candida – Safe For Breastfeeding

Due to the risk of advising anyone when children are involved, especially breastfeeding babies, we must state that it is wise to consult with your healthcare professional before starting any diet or supplemental protocols. That said, undecylenic acid is one of the most effective and least expensive supplements on the market for killing Candida and any other fungal infection; it allows the gut to reset itself. Plenty of breastfeeding mothers use it regularly.

A strong probiotic designed to pass through stomach acid is another great option for a breastfeeding mom. And for babies, a probiotic yogurt (not in the yogurt section; they're in the supplement section - check out Bio-K) is a great way to get beneficial bacteria that the kid will swallow.

If your child is eating solid foods, you can purchase a good probiotic in capsule form, open it, and stir it into their food. This is not a good option for adults since our stomach acid will kill the bacteria in capsulized probiotics that are designed to release the bacteria in the intestines, but babies have weak stomach acid that bacteria easily passes through. Remember, when you are dealing with yeast infections on the skin, this is indicative of high levels of yeast throughout the body. Candida leads to leaky gut syndrome and a host of autoimmune problems and allergies, so help yourself and your baby gain and maintain a healthy gut. To learn more, please check out the links below.

You can put probiotics directly on rashy skin. Undecylenic acid can be used too, but it is extremely painful. It does not damage the skin, but if fungi are present, there will be serious pain for 30 seconds to 3 minutes. The end result is much healthier skin, and the rash will begin to fade quickly. But again, it really hurts and is not something I recommend for babies unless the rash is beginning to do damage or is so painful that the pain factor becomes irrelevant.
