breastmilk cures pink eye?

My 11week has pink eye i think. He keeps rubbing it and its green and gooey and swollen and red. Has anyone heard of and tried using breast milk to cure it? If so did it work? I hate to take him to the doctor when he only has pink eye because of all the other sick kids...im a germ freak lol.

well they won't let you take in if you think pink eye because hoe contagious it is. I heard milk works so try and see how that goes if not ours just calls in prescription and you put in both eyes and go from there or at least with my older one (over a yr of age though) so maybe with 11 week idk...

Yes I used it on my 7yo and dd. It really works. I just gave her a squirt every time I nursed her.

Yep, I used on DS1 when he was about 2 months old. First, I put some in my eye with a dropper to make sure it didn't sting and make my vision funny. It was completely pain free and harmless. I put milk in his eye probably 6x a day and it cleared up in about 2-3 days. Good Luck!!

It really really works! It cleared up dd's pink eye after just a couple of days. We saw an improvement after I think the 2nd or 3rd use.

Yes! Used it on my daughter, my husband, and myself while on vacation in Hawaii. It feels UH-mazing and had us all cleared up in 4-5 days (but feeling much better within 2-3).

I'd heard it, but never from someone who had done it! Very interesting.

(never tried, only used meds)
