breastmilk on my babies eyes and ears

by Stacey
(US)

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.

Using Breast Milk for Cradle Cap

After reading this article; I am astounded at the many uses for breast milk beyond the natural intended use.

I did not know that you could use breast milk to treat cradle cap. See www.healthselects.com/help-my-baby-has-cradle-cap/ regarding info for treating this condition. I do think mothers though in any instance will always visit the doctors first to ensure that the condition is in fact cradle cap. It is just the cautious side of responsibility which is completely understandable.

However, some nice tips to keep in mind.

Good Article.

I just squirted a bit of milk on my babies head every time she ate. The cradle cap was gone in 3 days. Hasn't been back.

TReatment for dry or damaged hair. Awesome shine and softness!

by Sofia Soruco de Rojas
(Bolivia)

Just add 20 ml or so to any hair cream you would usually use (20ml for the amount you will use at that time). Apply to your hair, comb, use heat if you want, rinse it after 5 minutes or after all night. Its up to you...
The hair looks really shinny after this. It also feels really soft.
When you rinse it it will feel a litte oily. It wont feel that way when its dry.
I think there is difference of you use hindmilk foremilk or both but im not really sure yet...
My two sisters in law and I have tried this with great results! I always let them know my son has left some milk or their hairs.
My hair is really hard to "comb" so I Use conditioner for this process and after rise it I apply the conditioner that is mixed with breastmilk.
Hope this helps! The best part? Since its a supply and demand proccess I always have enough milk for my baby and for looking nice! (I dont really have the time though lol)
God bless you!

How to store when using it for other things besides food

When using your breastmilk for something daily like as a cleanser dO you just leave it out at room temp or do you put it in the fridge?

breast milk used for other things
by: Tracy

Definitely put it in the fridge if you are not going to use it within 6 - 8 hours. You could also freeze it and just thaw it later when needed.

Using breast milk to heal scars and piercings

I've been using breast milk on my new ear piercing, still waiting for results! I've also been using it on my c-section scar, and a scar I have on my arm. Both of which are already looking better after only a few days! :D

What about wrinkles and acne!
by: Tracy

Hi

Thanks for sharing!

That is amazing. I wish that I was still producing milk. Would have loved to try it on my breast lift and tummy tuck scars.

My friend is in the process of re-lactating and I just got a great idea. If breast milk can heal the skin so easily, then could it maybe be beneficial to use it on your face? To prevent wrinkles or heal acne?! I'm going to ask her for some, and try it out. Its worth a shot. Don't you think?

donating breastmilk

by marley
(medfield, ma)

I recently tried to donate breast milk and was told over the phone that if I taken fennugreek or consumed mothers milk tea while pumping the milk, they could not accept it.

They said that those things have been shown to upset the digestion in preemies. I had done both of those things and therefore, was unable to donate.

I was really upset and still have a freezer full of milk. I am going to try some of the above suggestions, but I would love to donate some before it goes bad too. Does anyone know how I can donate to hospitals for the Chemo, burn and post surgery patients?
thanks

Breast milk healed my leg ulcers

by Lee Leake
(Las Vegas Nevada)

I have had a continuing problem with leg ulcers for about twenty years. Recently I've had a problem with two leg ulcers for about five months and after trying all the tricks I've learned over the years with no positive results, I went to a well known wound clinic about three months ago to see what they could do.

They tried everything they knew including some kind of skin patches that cost $2000 an application with no positive results. After watching a news show on the benefits of breast milk on healing wounds, I acquired some fresh breast milk from my daughter who is breast feeding my grandson and figured I'd give it a try.

I saw a positive change in my ulcers in twenty-four hours. On the second day they started to have a burning sensation in them as the nerves seemed to be waking up.

In two weeks both ulcers were completely healed. My wound doctor was amazed at the quickness of the healing. The milk I used was always fresh and never frozen.

I think that there must be some kind of growth hormones in breast milk to stimulate ulcers to heal so fast. I don't know if milk that is frozen would still have worked as well. I imagine that growth hormones if present may not freeze well.

I will be freezing some milk for future use as I am certain I will have ulcers sometime in the future, and will find out then if frozen milk still works it's magic.

How many times a day do you apply the breast milk and how much do you apply? Did you apply a dressing as well?

Breastmilk for dry cracked heels

by Jo
(CanadaCnCan)

I had really dry, cracked heels. It was so bad my hubby wouldn't let me touch his legs with my feet bc they hurt so much. I put extra breastmilk on my heels and the cracks are gone and my heels are smooth again! It's awesome!

I also developed a dry, eczema, patch on my fingers (unsure why), and only breastmilk would help it from stinging and it finally started healing again!

This stuff is magic! Now to store it for when I am no longer breastfeeding.

Using breastmilk on shingles

by Leslie
(Washington)

I currently have shingles. I put my breastmilk onto my outbreak.

The skin around the blisters went from bright red to a lighter pink in just a few hours. Also, the burning/itching sensation was dramatically reduced.

I've used breastmilk successfully for pink eye and eczema before, so it is no surprise to me that it helped me in this situation!
