Breast milk contains all the water and nutrients that an infant needs to satisfy hunger, thirst, and growth.

fionalangsharpe

Wow can't believe you would allow a formula add to run with this article. Constantly undermining women with adds like these decreases the rates of breastfeeding. Increases the health risks to our children. Please reconsider your advertising. Thank you

breast milk is always ready at all time for the baby, it does not take time for it to be prepared,it does not have a money value,available always at the right temperature not too hot or not too cold,free from microbes,

s_mayur

please let me know what is the normal time taken for the milk to come into the breast after delivery. rgds Mayur Deshmukh mayurgdeshmukh@rediffmail.com

only????? is it related to genes? if non brothers feed from the same mother does this affect their biological cells or genes?
