How To Use Apple Cider Vinegar To Treat Yeast Infections in Babies

Often babies’ yeast infections appear as very severe diaper rashes. It is unsurprising that the candida fungus abounds in this area – after all, diapers can become very warm and moist environments, which candida loves! If your baby does develop a yeast infection here, there are several ways you can utilize the amazing naturally curative properties of apple cider vinegar to treat yeast infection.


Apple Cider Vinegar Recipe – Berry Breakfast for Baby

One of the most basic and versatile ways is to introduce the vinegar into your baby’s daily diet. One way to do this is through breast milk – when mom drinks the apple cider vinegar it naturally works through her system and into her breast milk, ensuring that baby gets the benefits as well. You can also add the apple cider vinegar to their daily meals, such as in the recipe below.


A Berry Breakfast for Baby


  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ banana
  • 10 strawberries
  • 20 blueberries


  • Place the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
  • Serve up to your baby for their breakfast, and watch them enjoy!


This recipe contains important nutrients and antioxidants that your baby will need to fight off the yeast infection, but if you know that they are allergic to any of these ingredients then you can substitute other fruits for the berries and bananas. In addition, if the taste of the vinegar is too strong for your baby, then you can reduce the amount to ½ tbsp.


How To Make Apply Apple Cider Vinegar Cream to Cure Your Baby’s Yeast Infection

Another way to use apple cider vinegar to cure your baby’s yeast infection is to topically apply the vinegar at the site of infection. If your baby’s yeast infection is located in their diaper area, the most common site of yeast infections in babies, then you can benefit from my great curative recipe below!


Recipe: Topical Ointment with Apple Cider Vinegar


  • apple cider vinegar
  • Diaper rash cream (preferably an all-natural or organic variety)
  • Empty re-sealable container


  • Ensure that your re-sealable container has been thoroughly washed and disinfected.
  • Mix one part apple cider vinegar to four parts diaper rash cream – the amount you use of each will depend on the size of the container you have.
  • Each time you change your baby’s diaper, apply this mixture to the site of their yeast infection and leave on until you change their diaper again.
  • At each diaper change, remember to thoroughly wash and dry the area before applying more ointment.


Because your baby’s skin will be quite sensitive, it may be necessary to further dilute the topical yeast infection ointment. Make sure to monitor your baby’s reactions to see if they are sensitive to the mixture.


How To Prevent Yeast Infections in Your Baby

There are some ways to avoid these yeast infections altogether, and apple cider vinegar can help. By keeping apple cider vinegar a regular part of your baby’s diet, you can make sure they are stopping yeast infections before they start!

In addition, you can also ensure that your baby’s diaper does not become a warm, moist environment for the candida to overgrow in. This can be done by make sure to change your baby’s diaper as soon as you detect it is soiled, and to thoroughly dry your baby between changes (you may also want to use an extra-drying baby powder to ensure maximum dryness).
