The color wheel of breastmilk 💛.
Did you know that it changes from composition to color to taste.
🥛-the initial colostrum is basically like the babes first vaccination with immunological components that act as a protectant to the newborn.
🥛-Breastmilk changes during growth spurts and illnesses.
-During growth spurts and more frequent feedings increases the fat content in the milk.
-Researchers believe that when the baby is sick she/he passes on a cue through her saliva that sends signal to Mommas body to produce more milk with illness -specific antibodies. WOW REAL MAGIC happening there!
🥛- ☀️ 🌚 Day & Night. Daytime milk has higher levels of prolactin, a hormone that helps produce milk =faster flow/greater volume. Evening Milk contains more serotonin and other elements to help the baby sleep.
🥛-Changes happen DURING feeding too.
Foremilk=the milk at he beginning of the feeding is more watery.
Hindmilk=the milk at the end is fattier.
🥛-FLAVOR— Our babes get exposed to various flavors depending upon what Mommas eating. How cool is that!?
Don’t get me wrong. I believe FED IS BEST. I just happened to look into some of the different things about breast milk I found to be impressive 💛. XO – Sarah
