Antibiotics or boobie milk

Okay, so I took my DS who is 3 month old to the doctor today because the gunk around and in his eyes just won't go away.

When it first started he had a bad stuffy nose and oozy ears as well. I put boobie milk in those too and the symptoms stopped.

Since the eye gunk was lingering I decided to take him to the doctor.

The doctor seems to think that he had a sinus infection that I cleared with my breast milk, go boobie milk. But he wrote a prescription for eye drops and said it should clear it the rest of the way. The pharmacist told me the eye drops were antibiotics. I am very hesitant about giving antibiotics when they aren't needed. I don't want to end up with thrush and a slew of other reasons.

So should I use the drops or just keep using breast milk?

I would jut use BM. But then again, I'm pretty opposed to antibiotics, unless they are absolutely needed.

I would use the bm because you can always change your mind later if you want.

Se that's what I was thinking. I could use the bm and go ahead and fill the RX and if it doesn't get better use the RX

Yup - keep up with the breastmilk for a while longer - - eye gunk can linger!

I would probably wait to fill it, but my pharmacy is down the block so I would easily be able to go back. The pharmacy will keep the script on file.

Oh wow I had zero clue BM could fix that! Way to go! Yeah by all means then wait on the Rx and see, it can't hurt. Although its a little odd to think of putting milk in my son's eye...

Yeah well after he started getting better I stopped being religious putting milk in his eyes
