Breast milk: In some cultures breast milk is applied to the eyes for the treatment of conjunctivitis.

No: Breast milk is good for babies to drink. Not really for topical use in the eyes. Fresh breast milk may contain bacteria which may worsen an infection. Most eye infections are viral or allergies and will go away on their own. If the drainage persists all day or he has a fever, see a doctor.
