Drop a few drops of breast milk in each nostril. Do this 2x a day. You’ll get results quick.
Apply breast milk to face daily with a cotton ball and watch that acne dry up. Results vary, however I saw improvement in the redness of the acne immediately.
Apply breast milk to a clean bottom with a cotton ball. It works best if you apply every diaper change. I’ve used as a preventative and my LO has never had a diaper rash.
Apply breast milk to nipples and let dry. Do it as often as needed. My nipples healed after a few days.
Apply breast milk to a dry, clean scalp. Let dry. Apply daily for best results. It should clear in a few weeks if you are consistent. I do NOT recommend brushing or combing out. I DID NOT have to. Dry/dead skin was removed when I washed scalp.
Add breast milk to bath water or make a lotion with coconut oil & breast milk and apply to skin as needed.
Apply breast milk directly to skin and as often as needed. I saw improvement overnight.
Put 3-4 drops of breast milk in the ear canal every few hours. It is hard to know when an ear infection has cleared, however pay attention to baby’s cues. Always consult a doctor if you have concern.
Apply a little breast milk to the affected area daily. The healing properties in Breast milk can help minimise the look of your stretch marks if consistent.
Gargle with a little breastmilk, several times a day for 1-2 days.
With a eye dropper, add a few drops of breastmilk to the eye. If symptoms worsen please consult your doctor.
I am not a doctor. Always consult your doctor if you have concern. Babies are all different. What worked for my LO may not work for your baby.
