It works! Helped my ds with a clogged tear duct. Massaged along the sides of his nose and squirted milk in his eye at every feeding. Cleared up in 2-3 days.

I've used it to clear an ear infection, clogged duct and pink eye. Worked like a charm.

I've heard that BM can cure almost anything

Re: breastmilk cures pink eye?

I guess I'll be the voice of dissent.....

I've had several eye infections run through my house while nursing. BM has not worked very well for us. Twice, once in myself and once in my son, the eye infection got SCARY bad while treating it religiously, many times throughout the day with BM. The first time it happened to me, I had a sinus infection and my eye started to get red and watery. Of course it was a Friday and they couldn't see me right away, nor would they call me in an Rx. I was pregnant at the time so I had colostrum and tried the that while waiting. My eye got worse and worse and worse. In fact I think the BM may have irritated it more. By Monday when my Dr could see me my eye was half the size of a baseball and it took a week off of work plus eye antibiotics to get rid of it.

Just a short while ago my 6 yo son got a sinus infection and again I thought I would try the BM. It went from an eye that was a little red and watery (at a point where you really wouldn't even think 'pink eye') in the morning. I gave him a few doses of BM before sending him off to school. To make matters worse it went from slightly pink and a little watery to full blown swollen infection. It was so bad I had to take him into the ER.

I still use it but only at the point that is so early in the eye infection I'm not even sure if it's an infection even at that it's only worked a time or two. Pink eye can go from bad to worse FAST and it's not something that I will mess with anymore. I now have the Rx at home and will use the BM first but I at least have the Rx as backup in case it doesn't work.

It has worked well for us. It cleared a couple minor eye infections my kids had. I also used it for my babies' blocked tear ducts when we did our twice daily duct massage; it helps prevent a secondary infections. I even used it on myself when I had a stye. It was so soothing. I remember my eye being so sore and itchy. Any time my eye started to irritate me, I'd wash it with my own breastmilk for instant relief of symptoms for several hours.

Re: breastmilk cures pink eye?

I would love to try using BM, but we've got thrush. If you aren't sure you've got thrush, don't try using BM. It's got yeast in it, and you'd be spreading yeast all over the baby's face/skin/eye/bum, causing an outbreak of yeast.
