I was prescribed antibiotics yesterday due to mastitis and I am a bit worried about getting nipple thrush/baby getting it. Does anyone have any handy tips for trying to avoid it? TIA

I second probiotics! Also limit sugar & take garlic tablets &/or eat garlic. Garlic is anti fungal & thrush is a fungal infection.

Thanks everyone. So excuse my ignorance but is probiotics like inner health plus ( I remember the ads for them) or do I just go to a chemist and ask for a probiotic an they will know what I mean? I'm assuming they are safe for breastfeeding also.

Probiotics all the way. Take more than the recommended dose. My naturopath always suggests a probiotic tablet with every antibiotic tablet you take. Works for me and I'm very thrush-prone.
