Breastmilk on the nipples will help heal cracks and whatnot. Lila had a weepy eye when she was a week or so old, it was really gooky and crusty so I would squirt breastmilk in it and within a couple days it was back to normal! Now her other eye has been doing that so the past couple days I've been squirting breastmilk in that eye and its almost cleared up again! Gotta love the powers of breastmilk!!!

I didn't know breastmilk helped with goopy eye! Charlotte has had a bit of a goopy eye, I'll have to try it. The doctor was quick to prescribe something for her and I didn't want to use it unless I really feel I have to.

Yup, totally cleared it up within the week. Between the breastmilk and some warm compresses a couple times a day, we were good to go! I just quirted the breastmilk in her eye as soon as I let down and usually she'd drift off to sleep too so it would stay in longer that way.

My Mom thinks I'm nuts too! lol
