>>>i cannot believe you people are actually answering this ? obviously a troll. oh and since when is breastmilk a cure for eye infections? or a cure for any infection? pleaseeeee<<<
LOL! Are you serious? It clears it up in a day and a half, easily. It is helpful, and more soothing to the eye than saline solution.
"Breastmilk has been used by mothers (probably for many years) to treat infectious conjunctivitis. Secretory IgA is an immunoglobulin, present in colostrum and mature human milk. It has been found to inhibit the adherence or bacteria to mucosal surfaces and limits bacterial colonization of the eye. " Debbi Donovan, IBCLC
Also see http://www.kellymom.com/health/illness/healing-breastmilk.html for more links to research and studies that are being done or have been completed. Anon, it's called RESEARCH.
The pee in the eye thing is an old folk remedy that this mama has probably heard. I'm betting not a troll.
