Hi, I am in a similar boat. I have an 18 mth old that I am still breast feeding (trying to wean, she just won’t have it). She had a yeast diaper rash about a month ago and has never been on antibiotics so I started thinking it came from me. Did some research, and candida actually explains a couple health things of my own. Anyway, I totally get why you are still nursing, formula is questionable in the first place let alone trying to find one for a candida sufferer. Have you looked into Nurishing Traditions homemade baby formula? I believe they have a meat based one. It might contain milk also, but maybe switch it to coconut or almond milk? Is there a Naturopathic doc that you could take him to, someone more open to the realities of candida? Being a newbie and all, I don’t really want to give advise, Im only one week in and have many questions myself, but it would seem to me, if you are treating him and yourself, why would it be bad to continue nursing? Good luck!!!
