breastmilk on my babies eyes and ears

by Stacey

I occasionally put breastmilk on my babies eyes and inside the ears. It keeps conjunctivitis away, and helps in healing an ear infection.

You can also put it up the nose like you would saline nasal spray and it will keep the nose clearer longer than the saline would.

For ear infections, I also put a drop of olive leaf oil and a little bit of coconut oil inside the ears. The coconut oil will help break down any wax he may have and the olive oil... its also anti bacterial...

Ever since I started doing this, my baby has not been on a anti biotic for ear infections. Whereas before we were going to the doc weekly for a new antibiotic for the ears!

My baby is now 8 months old, and has had ear infections, but they don't last longer than a few hours after I put breast milk in her ears.

Also, if baby is congested you can put a humidifier in the room with 1/2cup of apple cider vinegar (ACV) in it. ACV is one of the fastest ways to break down mucous, and fight the flu, colds and allergies.
