Have you seen the photos of breastmilk in varying colors floating around the internet? These photos claim an immune response in the mother’s milk.
We know that breastmilk alone is sufficient for a baby for the first six months of life. That’s because a mother’s milk is dynamic - meaning it is always changing - adjusting it’s composition to compensate for the baby’s current needs as he or she grows and develops.
So, not only does your baby “tell” you how much milk she needs, how often, and what her nutritional needs are, she is also relaying a message about her immune status.
