breastmilk cures eye infections ??

so my doc brought this up to me because my ds kept getting nasty eyes from his allergies.. it seems that if you put a drop or two of breastmilk in babys eyes they will clear up until the allergin is reintroduced.... worked for me. so i thought io would share.

Yep! BM cures all sorts of stuff! I'm actually glad your Ped told you about it and you didn't have to find out on a bulletin board like most!

I read in a BFing book that a college professor asked his student, who was BFing, for a squirt of BM for his pink eye! Guess it does work.

My ped. recommends it for helping cure a blocked tear duct.

Totally worked for us when DS was a newborn. He would get the worst gunk in his eyes! BLEH! Thank goodness for Mommy milk!
