when i was breast feeding i wasent aware yet that i had candida i know for certain health reasons there are situations where mothers shouldnt breast feed for the reasons u say because they could give their child the condition .i also know that certain medications are ok during breastfeeding as they arent excreted in milk .
because noone really knows what medicines taken for candida other than diflucan can be excreted in milk its really tricky to say what would be best here ,we dont know what medicines she is taking and how much toxins are really being excreted thru her milk .we do know breastfeeding is the best thing for the babys immune system even if hers isnt in top shape right now .
maybe trying an organic formula along with breastfeeding and do half and half but since your baby is still so young i really wanna advise u to continue breastfeeding as long as u can .i was upset when i stopped at 6 months due to pain issues and i wished i could of done it longer well mayb nxt time ,dont beat yourself up if u decide to stop but just keep trying for now .
