Yes it really does work and all you need is a few drops! You can also use it for ear infections and put it in their nose to clean it out!

You can also help by gently massaging the corner of his eye down toward his nose. Both mine had that and while I didn't know about the extra uses for breast milk with my first I combined both for my second and it cleared up like the next day! Now I use it for diaper rashes, ear infections and it even helped clear up pink eye in my oldest. I didn't tell him it was milk tho lol just said it was "medicine"

Yep! I used my milk for everything under the sun. I hand expressed into a medicine cup and used a syringe to squirt the milk into whatever needed it.

My aunt healed my cousin's eye infection with her milk. She just dripped a few drops into her eye and it was gone in a day or so.  I have never tried it because mine have never gotten eye infections.

Yup. go ahead. help him out. A drop or two at a time just before you nurse, and then try it right after you nurse. Each time you nurse.

It isn't Western Medicine - one pill you're done. It's a treatment. He'll get better.

press your hand (flat) on your breast and push gently towards the center from 3-4 angles. you will find more milk has come down to be let out.

Blessings!

it is also the fastest healing substance for a cut. On any one, not just the baby. so if your toddler cuts themselves, clean it and put a few drops on there. Facial cuts heal with little or no scarring.  : D

There are more uses!

I have never heard of this. Thankfully I just stumbled upon this post! And you can't squirt any milk? That's all mine does. My DS is 19mo. and still, if I press on my boob the wrong way it will squirt! lol
