Breastmilk Lotion? Here's the Recipe!

Did you know that your breast milk also provides amazing topical benefits to your baby? If you're looking to do something creative with your extra or "tipsy" supply, try homemade breast milk lotion.

Here's How To Make Your Own Breast Milk Lotion!

There are some amazing vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in human milk that work together to provide the perfect food for your growing babe.

Breastmilk changes as your baby grows, specifically to meet their individual needs.

There is also evidence that breast milk has healing properties. It helps with minor cuts, scrapes, rashes, or skin irritations, eye and ear infections and nipple damage. Speak with your pediatrician if your baby has signs of an eye or ear infection before only using breastmilk as a remedy.

Breastmilk lotion is natural and simple to help calm baby eczema, acne, diaper rash and dry skin.

This is a super simple recipe, using only a few additional ingredients that can be purchased ahead of time on Amazon or at most major health food stores:
