What other things is breast milk good for? I heard something about using your breast milk to cure baby ear infection. Does it work?

One of the benefits about breastfeeding is that your baby will have less if any ear infections because of how they latch and how the jaw moves with the developing ear canals. I haven't heard about it curing ear infection unless its the latching that does it.

Breastmilk can help with cradle cap. My daughter had that and I rubbed some breast milk into her scalp and it cleared up.

We used it to help treat my daughter's pink eye. I don't know about ear infections though my kids never had them.
