Breastmilk and Baby Spit?

Feb 03

One more reason to get milk from the source!

When a baby nurses, it creates a vacuum in which the infant’s saliva sneaks into the mother’s nipple. There, it is believed that mammary gland receptors interpret the “baby spit backwash” for bacteria and viruses and, if they detect something amiss, her body will actually change the milk’s immunological composition, tailoring it to the baby’s particular pathogens by producing customized antibodies.
