I figured there are lots of good places to find the info, I just wanted to see what others know or have used. Kind of fun sharing and learning from others.

Re: What else is BM good for?

Yep, I squirted it in my daughter's eye when she was a baby. But I've never heard of using it in their nose, for diaper rash, etc...How do you use it? What do you do?

Express a little milk into a container. For the nose get an eye dropper and gently squit a little into each nostril, it will help clear up any infection in the nasal passage. For the diaper area, sometimes it is easier to soak a cotton ball or cloth w/ the BM, coat the baby's bottom w/ the milk and let it dry a bit before putting the diaper back on, kind of like you would do if you coated a sore on your nipple, let it air dry before putting a pad or closing your bra up.

I am suprised no one has bottle BM and sold it, it would be worth a million in my eyes.

It makes mosquito bites stop itching! I found this out firsthand this summer - I got eaten alive when I went to my parents lake house. A couple of drops and the itching stopped for a good 4-5 hours.

Re: What else is BM good for?

My 7 week old fosterbaby had a really bad case of seboreic dermatitis-sp? all over his face. The doc said to use hydrocortizone cream, well, it bleached his beautiful brown skin, now his face was red, inflamed, scaley and had big white patches-what a sight! I went to a friend's house and picked up some BM and applied it to his face-wow, his face cleared up really fast! Wouldn't it be great if it would get rid of the white patches too? Well, I am just happy that his face is clear now.

This is a great thread -- I'm gonna try it on DS's eczema and diaper rash.

My son had a "goopy" looking eye for about a day and half, not conjuctivitis, maybe a clogged tear duct, I put a little BM in his eye and in about 30 mins he was fine

I've personally used it for burns and diaper rash. It is just the best stuff ever!
