    Default Yeast coming out her butt? (TMI)

    So Evie has been having painful gas and not pooped in a few days. I was giving her homemade rice cereal and we tasted homemade asparagus (then the gas started bad) and then I realized that asparagus is not a recommended 1st foods (oops). So I tried yellow squash. She likes all the food we've tried (just those three) and eats about 1/2 oz each time I offer it (about once a day). Well, since the painful gas and the lack of poop, I've stopped all solids for a while. She definitely seemed ready and had LOTS of signs that she was.

    But lately, when she toots the painful gas, I think she's pooped and I go check and I see a white yeast infection type discharge coming from her butt hole. She also has white yeast infection type vaginal discharge. I've never experienced this before.

    At her 4 month check up I asked the doc to verify that she didn't have oral thrush cause she had a couple of spots on her lips that went away but we were having painful latching again. She said she didn't have any. Did we miss it and it's now in her digestive system?? I'm confused.

    I called the doc and am waiting for the nurse to call me back.

    Anyone else deal with this before?

    Sounds like thrush. I ran across an article about thrush on Babycenter a while ago when I was googling and I found it and it might help you:

    If your child recently had thrush (a yeast infection of the mouth), he may end up with a yeast infection in his diaper area, too. That's because yeast passes through your child's digestive system when he eats and it ends up in his stool, which eventually lands in his diaper right next to his warm, damp skin.

    I have no advice regarding the yeast, however I also noticed that when I feed Andrew solids he has terrible gas. I actually realized that everyday I feed him solids he wakes up in the middle of the night crying and I think it is gas. I have also put a hold on solids for a while.

    I need to read further about it I suppose. The doc seemed to think that it doesn't present the same orally as it does rectally. There's no red bumps associated with a yeasty diaper rash. And of course, I wiped it off her this morning and it wasn't there at the appointment. He listened to her belly and palpated it and said since she's passing gas he doesn't think there's anything wrong but a sluggish bowel.

    But I was thinking the same as you, Lenora. Cause I, too, read that it can come out in their feces.

    He suggested giving her juice to get her pooping. I don't know, now. I don't want to feed the thrush.

    Gah.

    I don't have any answers, just wanted to say sorry that you're dealing with this! Hope you get it figured out and Evie starts feeling better soon!

    hope you can figure it out soon! Isaiah's got a yeast rash in his diaper area and there's definitely no white stuff, it's been a while since I've changed girl diapers but I don't remember that with my girls either.

    It def looks yeasty to me but there is no irritation.

    But good news is she pooped tonight with no prompting from me. it was the normal color. and no white mucous or anything white in it, so it must just be an exterior thing. The poo was very, um, fibrous/stringy, so her constipation most likely was a result of the solid foods.

    I'm gonna keep holding off on the solids for another few weeks and then try again if I feel up to it.

    As for the white stuff.. I've got nystatin still, so I'm just gonna apply it twice a day and see what happens. I feel more comfortable knowing her digestive system is not laced with white pasty stuff.

    I'm glad things seemed to have worked out. I'm taking my time starting Ronan on solids- he hasn't had any yet. I'm hoping to wait until he's six months to start him. DD I started around five months, because she had reached the point where she needed more calories than what she was getting nursing. They're all so different- maybe Evie's digestive system just needs a little more time. I know that asparagus can be a gas-causing and fibrous food, so hopefully that's all the gas/constipation troubles were about, and you won't have any problems when you start her back on solids!

    Well, the doc said that cause her "normal" schedule is only pooping once a day, that her digestive system is slow for a breast fed baby. She had all the signs of being ready for solids except for an actual tooth and sitting completely unassisted. She's been drooling sooo bad that I figured that it would aide in digestion (it's supposed to, right?) and I can't cook or serve food while holding her cause she's really quick and will grab and get it to her mouth before I can stop her. I've not actually let her eat anything that she gets to her mouth.. but that's a sign of being ready, right?!

    Oh well, she and I both thought she was, but I suppose her body was playing tricks on us.
