Breast milk is the very first nutrient to the child after birth and the sole food that needs to be given for the first 6 months. The nutritional profile of breast milk in terms of calories, vitamins, and minerals is the BEST for the infant as it has the perfect proportion of them all. Though it is vital, many mothers forego breastfeeding due to various reasons. Sometimes social, work related, psychological and personal reasons prevent mothers from being able to breastfeed the child. In such cases breast milk can be expressed manually or with a breast pump, stored under optimum conditions and given to the infant when needed.
