Does anyone have a reference for using cholostrum or breastmilk in place of antibiotic ointment? I know I have heard of it and read about it. But all I can find now is for eye infections. Nothing specifically mentions prophylactic treatment for newborns.
I had a pt the other day wanting to use cholostrum instead of the Ilotycin ointment that we use, which of course, caused an uproar in the NSY. When I mentioned to the nurse manager that it wasn't uncommon, she said I'd be interested in learning more about that, can you find some articles. Me and my big mouth.
