So this leads to me ask.....have you ever read about the healing properties of breastmilk? God truly made it a "perfect" food for our little ones, but not only that, it can actually cure many different things! Breastmilk contains so many antibodies that help fight off infection. When applied topically, it can fight off viruses and bacteria. Statistics show that a breastfed infant will have a lower chance of cancer & heart disease later in life. The list goes on and on.....
Well this past week our little men have had red, watery, goopy eyes, not only during the day, but at night too. I am currently nursing our 3 month old and decided I would put drops of breastmilk in their eyes. I actually felt quite silly as it didn't dawn on me sooner, they went a whole day with no treatment! I did this to both boys, a few times and within 10 hours they looked about 75% better. We have continued to do this throughout the week and they are almost 100% better.
So thankful to be able to use natural remedies at home! Are you a nursing mommy? Maybe the next time your little one is in need, your breastmilk will be at their aid!
