DIY: Fantastic Breast Milk Lotion Recipe for Baby

Science tells us about how amazing Breast Milk is for nutrition and there are so many reason why it is fantastic. While my adventures nursing my own babies have had their ups and downs over the years, I truly think we need to support breastfeeding Moms and Babies. I even made a list to help encourage myself during times when I was struggling to breastfeed my little one. In the post, 100 Reasons Why I Breastfeed you can find some great links to fantastic science explaining just why Breast Milk is as mentioned, AMAZING! I am betting though dear readers that you are amazing too and already know this stuff. But, did you know Breastmilk can make baby lotion? When I saw this Breastmilk Baby Lotion Recipe in a Crunchy Parenting group I knew I wanted to share it with you all. With permission I present it to you in all it’s milky wonder!

Breast Milk Baby Lotion

~~~~~~~

Considering that breast milk has been used on babies to clear up their skin, on rashes, and for pink eye it is shocking to me now that I never tried this! Why put premade lotions on babies when their mothers are making milk naturally designed just for them? Did you know Mamas milk changes based on her babies needs and in response to illness the baby might have? Did you know each teaspoon of breast milk has 3 MILLION cells designed to fight germs even? It is amazing, so of course I think breast milk baby lotion is brilliant! So thankful Krysti posted about it and let me share, you inspire!
