    Default Powers of Breastmilk!

    Just wanted to brag a little. My 2 yr. old had impetigo around her mouth and before I tried the antibiotic cream I wanted to test the antibacterial healing properties I've heard about breatmilk. Guess what? Two days later it was almost entirely gone. I was impressed!

    Yes! There is actually a study (I can't remember where I read it, or I'd paste the link) saying that breastmilk can help treat acne! I just never remember to do it...LOL

    Breastmilk on everything-cuts, scrapes, pimples, rashes, chapped lips, bug bites, bee stings, sunburn...the power of the best gold medicine out there.

    It really does work!!
