I think I read a post a day or two ago about putting BM in various places to help various things. I've only ever put it in the baby's mouth lol, but she had a DR appt today and he says it looks like she might have an ear infection. She seems to be getting a tooth, so I guess that can be related? Anyway, should I put milk in her ears? That sounds funny to me, but hey, if it works I'm all for giving it a shot. I try to avoid medicating babies if they don't need it...

Yes! Couple drops of Boob juice in each ear will help with ear infections!

Yes it works, I know it sounds weird to me too but it does work and its much better than medicine. My niece had an eye infection about a week ago and my sister asked me for some. The infection was cleared up the next night. It just takes a couple of drops.

I would do it up the nose too since most ear infections are a tesulf of sinus inflammation.

Ok then, I'll give it a shot (Or a squirt?)

Can't wait to see my grandmother's face when I tell her, she thinks I'm a complete weirdo for even breastfeeding, probably have a fit when I tell her I'm putting it other places too LOL

I put some in DD's eye when it was all watery. I tried rubbing some on her face too when she broke out really bad. That second one didn't work very well lol

As long as the eardrum hasn't ruptured, you can put a few drops in his ear.  It may help with the pain, though with as bad as that pain can get it may not (it's hit or miss here).  Have you tried ibuprofen or tylenol?
