Some may find this weird but I have a stye and was reading that breastmilk can help cure it. The problem is I've been now breastfeeding for 20months (my son nurses about 6x a days) and my breasts dont leak like they use to. So the only way I can think of getting milk out is by hand expressing. Ive never done this and dont know how. Any advice

We suggest using breastmilk for EVERYTHING in this group! :-) I agree with the YouTube suggestions.
I was able to hand express until almost a year ago when my son was 4 1/2. I was VERY sad when I couldn't even get a drop anymore. I used my milk for everything, especially my face for my acne.

Thanks ladies, I was able to find my pump and pumped out an ounce. I don't want to jinx myself but it has been less than 24 hours since I applied the breast milk and the pain is all gone and the stye has disappeared. I noticed within a few hours of first applying that the pain decreased as well as the size of the stye. Absolutely Amazing

YES!!! I used it for over 4 years! I was so sad when I couldn't get any more out last year. :-(
It doesn't work for everyone.
