Breast milk can do more than simply nourish your baby.
In fact, not only can it treat a number of bodily ailments, but it can be made in to jewellery, food or even deodorant.
According to the Daily Mail, there are weird and wonderful ways you can use breast milk that doesn't involve feeding your baby.
1. Throat gargle
Sore throat? Breast milk could do the trick.
The Medical Daily reported either drinking or gargling breast milk could relieve a sore throat in newborns.
It seems a bit of a stretch, but some mothers said they have used breast milk in place of deodorant.
Code Name Mama reported the milk was simply patted under the arms and left to dry.
You have heard of goat's milk soap, scented soap and liquid soap.
But breast milk soap? Didn't think so.
According to the blog Code Name Mama, breast milk is perfect for the skin as it contains 'essential proteins, amino acids and vitamin A'.
The lactic acid in the soap also works to cleanse and soften your skin.
4. Make-up remover and acne wash
Simply put the breast milk on a cotton pad and remove make up.
The Medical Daily also said breast milk works to treat acne due to the lauric acid it contains.
As an added bonus, the milk is said to soften the skin.
5. Cooking ingredient
Babies are not the only ones who can consume breast milk.
Cheese, butter, ice cream and baked goods are just some of the foods people have made using it.
The milk is said to taste sweeter than cow's milk and a bit nutty, according to the blog Mama's Milk No Chaser.
Some mothers also freeze the milk into popsicles to give to their teething toddlers.
Many women look fondly back on the time they breastfed their baby.
And in order to remember it, some are making pearls or charms out of their breast milk.
British mother-of-two Nicola Kamminga uses closely-guarded stabilising and hardening techniques to turn the milk in to wearable works of art.
7. Ear treatment
Breast milk can be used as a natural remedy to treat an ear infection in both adults and babies.
According to The Medical Daily, the antibodies in the breast milk help fight infection.
Simply place three to four drops of the milk in the entrance to the ear canal.
8. Stings and sunburn relief
Breast milk is a natural antiseptic and can be used to treat insect bites or stings, Code Name Mama said.
Apply a drop of breast milk directly to the affected area, and it will help heal the skin.
It can also be gently patted on to sunburn.
