Breastfeeding adapts to your baby's needs

KDAH

One of the remarkable aspects of breastfeeding is its ability to adapt to a baby's changing needs throughout its development. The mother produces colostrum, a thick and yellowish milk, rich in antibodies, proteins, and immune-boosting factors, in the first few days after birth. This helps protect the newborn's delicate immune system and provides essential nutrients for early growth. During growth spurts, babies may nurse more frequently, which stimulates the mother's body to increase the fat content of her milk to support the baby's rapid growth. #WorldBreastfeedingWeek
