I have been thinking about making a soap for Baby Ben using fresh breastmilk. I know what you are thinking, eeww! But why not? I used honey, breastmilk, and milk thistle scent added to a white cold process to make Ben's soap. Honey and breastmilk are both inhibitors to bacterial growth so they make an ideal baby soap. I rolled the soap into small balls that should work well for single use for bathtime. They need to cure for a while. I'll keep you updated on how well they work.
Susan, Mother, Teacher, CLC, Doula, Family Herbalist, Student Midwife, and more
I have given birth to 10 children. Three of my children live with their father. My two oldest are adults now. I work part time as an Infant / Toddler Developmental Specialist with Early Intervention. I am starting a part time teaching position this month. My ultimate goal though is to become a DEM. I am currently studying to become a Midwife. I also provide in home breastfeeding support to families as a CLC (certified lactation counselor). I am also a Family Herbalist. I earned my graduate degree in Education (Infant / Toddler Development) while I had my 5th and 6th child. Now I am trying to slow things down and enjoy my journey through life as a mother and grandmother. I have many passions and learning to combine them all as I support my family financially is a worthy challenge. One day I hope to add PhD after my name. I may be 60 when that happens but that is OK.
