What else is BM good for?

Another thread made me think of this. I figured some of you more experience mammas could share some of the added benefits that BM has to offer. Of course we know it is the best food for our DC, but what else can you do with it. I will start

If DC has conjuctivitis, a few drops in the eye a day for a few days will clear it up. (I promise this works, I have seen it for myself)

Anyother tips?

wiping off blood, put in cuts/burns/bites/ whatever instead of neosporin, works much better and is much healthier, infected toenails, or anything else, even piercings for aftercare. the toe one ialso know from experience, it was clear in a couple hours!! :Oif their eyes are goopy as a little baby, it fixes it, umm, ill think some more

When I read the title I was totally thining of the [I]other[I] BM, lol. THAT isn't good for anything! Breastmilk in the bath does help with dry skin, but so does regular milk. Depends on which one you can spare....

There was an entire article in Mothering about it. You can probably see in on mothering.com
