I am breastfeeding my 5 week baby. I have been feeling itching down there vaginal for 2 week. And my baby seen to be throwing up here milk for a little more than two weeks. If i had a yeast infection or something could it pass to my bab. Out of state right now so can't see a doctor

Not unless you are putting your baby near your vagina or very very bad about washing your hands. Why haven't you treated your yeast infection for two weeks??

You don't need to be seen to treat a yeast infection. Monistat is available OTC.

You should always make sure that you can take any medicine while you are breastfeeding.  You should be able to just call your doctor and ask if it's alright without an appointment.
