DH has had an ongoing cold for about 1.5 weeks. Still miserable. I suggested putting some bmilk in a neti pot (he uses it fairly regularly). He's game but I've never done it before..anyone have any luck with killing off a cold this way?

TIA!

No experience but brilliant idea. But...depending on your stash, do you want to "waste" that much milk when you can use other things like GSE instead?

Ooooh! Doulamary - I hadn't thought of GSE...may try that. I actually have no stash, I was going to pump just a bit and mix it w/ water for DH. I googled it and found one reference to mixing about a tablespoon w/ water and doing a nasal rinse with it.

Anyone else heard of this?
