i had pink eye a few weeks back, and thats what i did! I pump, so i already had expressed milk on had. i poured a little in a medicine cup, and then used a syringe to squirt some in my eyes. I did it several times a day (4-5) for about a week. It really worked! The milk that was already cold from being in the fridge was the most soothing.
From what i read, breastmilk has natural antibacterial properties
Eye infections / Conjuctivitis ("Pink Eye"): Squirt into the eye. Do this as frequently as possible until healed. If the baby/child doesn’t allow you to squirt breastmilk into his eye, then do it while they are sleeping. Squirt around the crease of closed eyes, then gently lift the lids to allow the breastmilk to seep into the eye.
