I hurried and got my oldest daughter ready for school and then raced over to my friend who recently had a beautiful baby boy, and who is breastfeeding. I had actually used breastmilk (from another good friend!) in my eldest ear earlier last week (we were using it for pinkeye- works great, by the way!). We have been going through a full scale onslaught of the crud. It worked on my oldest daughter, but I thought that was a different situation. She wasn't in writhing, inconsolable pain like my little middle child. I however, was out of ideas and we of course couldn't get into the doctor until 10:40am- a long time to wait with that kind of pain. We procured the liquid gold from my friend and rushed home. I put it in her ear by about 8:30am and by around 9:00am she said, "Mama, I want to get up and play it doesn't hurt anymore." What?!!! She acted completely like her typical self and I kept watching her. She was fine!
I went downstairs to tell my husband almost a little giddy that a trip to the doctor's visit looked like it would be unnecessary. He was shocked. He said, "But she was getting almost to the point you were when your eardrum ruptured." I know!
I put another dose in both ears and she has been fine all day!
I am so very appreciative to the two women who donated a bit of their babies milk to my babies in need! How very generous and I am forever grateful!
As always, I would just like to make note this worked for us at this time, but I think it depends on the type of ear infection your child has if it will work or not. But in any case, in my opinion it is worth a shot. :) So very happy it worked for my little girl though! Thank you again to the mamas and babies who shared with us!
