breastmilk for stuffy nose?

Anybody used bm for baby's stuffy nose?  Will it help with stuffy noses caused by allergies.  My babies have been stuffy and grumpy lately and I've heard bm can help but I've never tried it before.

Yep & I've used it for any kind of stuffy  nose. We also use it for scrapes, burns, ear infections, eye infections, dry skin, rashes, you name it! The first thing my husband said when I showed him my pregnancy test was "yay medicine chest is back!"

That is hilarious what your husband said!  Do you use the bm on everybody in your house?  How do you get it in noses?  Sorry this idea is all new to me.

I just express into a medicine cup and then use a dropper to squirt up the nose. I use it in my kids and myself. DH thinks its gross but it works.

Yes on all of us. I  express into a regular cup or medicine cup & use a medicine squirter to squirt it up the nose & a medicine syringe for in the ears.

Yes. This is what I did for noses and ears. I just squirted it on cuts and scrapes (myself and my boys). I expressed into my hand to rub on my face for my acne. I was sad when I could no longer express anything.
