adapting to your baby needs
Colostrum is produced during the first days after birth. It has a yellowish colour and it is a real immunity booster for your baby. It is packed with proteins and antibodies. Its laxative effect helps ensure your baby's digestive system functions properly.
Colostrum also protects your baby against environmental influences and helps ensure proper intestinal colonization. Containing only very little salt, it furthermore protects your baby's immature kidneys.
This is the creamy milk that comes right after colostrum. It is produced during the period from two to five days after birth to ten to fourteen days after birth. Transitional milk features high levels of fat, lactose and water-soluble vitamins and contains more calories than colostrum.
MATURE BREAST MILK
While mature milk is rich in fat, it has lower salt and protein levels. It provides your baby with complex nutrition. Mature milk also contains substances that help colonise the intestinal tract, increase your child's immunity against bacteria and viruses and optimise nutrient absorption and digestion.
"In the first period, breast milk is a real source of immunity for your baby"
This is the milk released at the start of a feeding. It is rich in milk sugar (lactose) and water.
This is the milk released at the end of breastfeeding. It satisfies your baby's hunger and provides most of the nutrients needed to gain weight and grow.
