I was thinking of this tonight, that I'd try it on DS's eczema. Would you just wipe it on with cotton wool?

I always wanted to see if I could make yoghurt or cheese..... grin

Cradle cap! Worked a treat when mixed with a bit of lansinoh.

It improved the appearance of the pores on my nose grin

AngelDog- cotton wool is probably the best way to go, I tried to just squirt it on DD1's back but she moves too fast.

Makes a mean fish pie but you need lots

Apparently it is a cure for some types of cancer

very good as a cleanser toner.really smooths and clears skin!someone could make a mint if they knew how to sell it like that!

Ice cream. You can't make cheese as it lacks a specific enzyme but I think yogurtvwould be possible.

I always get a bit of clotted cream from my pots of EBM. real shame that we can't make boob cheese.

Breastmilk cheese recipe. Happy cheese-making grin

Now I just need to try again to pump some. I'm thinking that trying on a day when 20 m.o. DS has been feeding at roughly half-hourly intervals (sometimes less) wasn't the best time to try. hmm

Paschaelina - are there tiny fishies in my milk?

MotherPanda Fri 23-Sep-11 11:06:25

Eaurouge Thanks for the recipe, will get to cheese rolling right away.

Nooooo silly you poach the fish in the breastmilk with clove-studded onion quarters and bay leaves, then once its fishy clovey oniony bay flavoured you make the white sauce with it smile Add nutmeg, season, bung the fish back in, slap the mash on top and bung it in the oven for half an hour.

The man in the Sun today was going to see how long he could survive on just breastmilk. Pumped and frozen, not directly from his wife.

MotherPanda Sat 24-Sep-11 08:14:12

Paschaelina - that's good to know, I was wondering how i was going to post fish food through my nipples...

Miss - why not directly from his wife? I don't think it will last - there was that 1yr old in france who was ebf, and died of malnutrition.

Good for nappy rash too

"there was that 1yr old in france who was ebf, and died of malnutrition"


Just googled it, apparently its cause the mother was vegan and not supplementing her diet...

iirc there were other health issues with the french baby
