3. Painful Feeding: Some nursing mothers experience pain in the first few days/weeks of feeding their babies and often turn to Lanolin or other balms to sooth dry, cracked and often bleeding skin. To heal and soothe, just rub a few drops of milk onto the area.
4. Eczema: Babies often suffer from dry skin patches which can result in eczema. If you want an alternative to store-bought moisturisers use this natural product.
5. Eye infections: It is common for babies (and people of all ages) to get what is called pink eye, or an eye infection if their newly formed tear ducts become blocked. Drop some breast milk into the corner of their eyes and its natural antibodies will help to remove any infection without the harmful (potential) side effects of antibiotics.
6. Insect bites, cuts, and scrapes: Perfect for helping to relieve the itch of a mosquito or insect bite and to aid in the healing process of any minor cuts and scrapes. Just place a few drops on the area before applying a bandage.
7. Ear Infections: Put a few drops into the ear canal every 24 hours to help clear up any infection. A far safer alternative than antibiotics.
8. Relieve Itching: If your child gets chicken pox, it can be dabbed on with a cotton bud to help relive any itching and aid in healing of any sores.
9. Sore throat: Swirling some of the milk around in the mouth and even gargling with it can help.
10. Cradle cap: Apply to the scalp of any baby who has cradle cap, a few times a day. Then wash off as normal as part of their regular bathing routine.1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6
