    Default breast milk in ear to treat ear infection?

    has anyone ever tried this? does it work?
    i've tried it in the eyes and it was great, but never in the ear.
    my lo seems to have an ear infection now, just want to check whether anyone has used bm in the ear for their children. Thanks!

    I have never tried it but I have read that it works. I can't remember where though. I probably would get doctor's advice if there is a fever or drainage but if not and baby is not miserable I would try it.

    ear infections are in the inner ear so putting something in the ear canal won't fight the infection. if your lo is running a fever I suggest getting him to the dr may need antibiotics
