Scientists have 'accidentally' discovered that a compound in breast milk could have cancer fighting properties.
Experts have long been waxing lyrical about the amazing qualities of breast milk when it comes to feeding a baby. Not only does it offer them the perfect blend of nutrition, but breast milk also contains antibodies that can boost your child’s immune system. While, studies have also revealed this to be true, seeing the incredible powers of breast milk with your own eyes, is pretty darned amazing.
We know the benefits of breast milk when it comes to feeding your baby, but did you realise it has other benefits? Parents have been taking to social media to share homemade recipes for breast milk skin lotions that could help clear a baby’s skin of irritations and infections such as eczema. While in Singapore, handmade soap company, Lullabelle, custom makes breast milk lotion and soap for mums and babies who send them samples of their milk. Manufacturers claim the nutrients in breast milk could help benefit sensitive skin and soothe skin irritations such as eczema. So forget about feeding the baby (well not forget, but you get what we mean) and take a look at some of the other uses for breast milk.
