Human Milk Feeding


more about Human Milk Feeding


Description

  • The saying "breast is the best" has its origin in biologic merit.
  • Studies have confirmed that even undernourished Third World women and economically deprived women have adequate milk and their milk is similar to the milk produced by well-nourished women.
  • Breast-feeding women produce an average of 600 mL of milk daily.


    Colostrum

  • Colostrum is the deep yellow-colored milk secreted the first several days after childbirth.
  • Colostrum secretion last about 5 days and changes to mature milk gradually.
  • Colostrum has more protein and minerals, but less fat and sugar, compared to mature milk.
