We all know breast milk is a super food for babies, but breast milk is good for more than nutrition. For example... Breast milk for cuts and scrapes: You can apply breast milk directly to a cut (on you or your baby). Some studies show that breast milk contains natural infection fighters. It's not a total antibiotic, but is great in a pinch, or even if you just want to skip the medicine. You can express milk onto a clean cotton pad, the cut itself, or a clean cloth, and dab it on the cut or scrape. Let it air dry then bandage. Breast milk for pink eye: Pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is a common eye issue that causes redness and irritation in and around the eye. Breast milk can treat this condition. Express a little into a cup and drop a bit into the eye. Easier with a baby if you use a small dropper to suck up some milk first. Adults can use this treatment too. Breast milk for breasts!: During the early weeks of breastfeeding, your nipples may get dry and cracked. Rubbing a bit of breast milk onto them can help. Breast milk for mosquito bites: This one I've heard around, though not tried myself. It's rumored that a littl breast milk can stop the itch cause by a bite. Have you tried this?
