Recently my daughter had a bad diaper rash due to those lovely diapers that can come with teething. I applied breast milk and allowed it to air dry and the next day there was HUGE improvement. I also had squirted some in her nose when she had a cold – helped break up her congestion. One application to my husband’s cold sore knocked it out. It’s helped my eczema. I burned my hand over the holidays and breastmilk took the sting right out of it. It’s those wonderful antibodies in human milk that help fight these infections and ailments.

It’s a little miracle drug! 🙂 We did not believe it until we saw the affects ourselves. Just more reasons why you should breasfeed as long as possible. My daughter is 21 months and going strong!
