fyi.<br><br>
I didn't think this would work, but hey it does. You may already know this.<br><br>
My ds has a stuffy nose, my sis told me to express some milk into my hand and use a nasal aspirator to squirt into his nose. Low and behold it works like a charm and he seems sooo much better. It is draining his nose and he can breathe..

Oh really?<br><br>
How much do you use? My poor ds has been a congested babe since a few weeks old. Both DH and I have had severe allergies and asthma. Aidan has been snoring loudly and I had a feeling he had problems with his Adenoids, my brother had to have his removed, and I was right...so we have to see a specialist in November, but sorry for rambling, .... Aidan is always congested so we are constantly using our "Boogey snatcher" , which we seem to lose all the time too, so I am gonna try that cause it gets bad, I think I heard that tip, but only about rubbing it just inside his nose, which didn't do much, but your tip makes a lot more sense, thanks again!

I use breast milk for most any topical medicine.<br><br>
It clears up goopy/pink eye.<br><br>
As an antibactierial for cuts and scrapes.<br><br>
In stuffy noses.<br><br>
In sore ears.<br><br>
On diaper rashes.<br><br>
I figure it is worth a try and at least won't hurt (and often does help).

So will this work for me, too? I think I'm getting a sinus infection but don't want to take antibiotics... How often do I squirt it in? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

I'm not sure how much, I would do as much as possible. For babe's I'd guess a couple of drops here and there. I would do too much at one time, 'cause they don't enjoy it that much, and my ds will gag a little and fuss.<br><br>
For the mama's and etc. I'd again do as much as tolerated. The more the better..
