Normally I would recommend you to go on a good candida diet, but make sure the diet is safe to do while you are breastfeeding. As long as you are getting all the necessary nutrition you should be fine in theory, but do not take any unnecessary risk unless you are sure you can do it without causing harm to your or your daughter. Look at the diet, and show it to your doctor, ask for their opinion. The problem is a lot of people on a candida diet lose a lot of weight.
As to the yeast infection being passed onto your daughter, according to Medline Plus it's generally passed from the nipples during breastfeeding to the baby's mouth as they are excellent places for yeast to grow. If you do not have yeast on your nipples the chances of that being passed are far lower. Be careful with diaper rash as well.
