From Mon 6th September, we're offering free access to videos featuring 7 lactation scientists, a webinar and a CERP approved mini-course on the science of breast milk. All for free!



In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week 2021, I asked the brilliant people of our private Facebook group “Your favourite fact about breastfeeding?”

Do join the group on this link:

I thought I would share some of the amazing collective wisdom with you!

Maeve - That we store fat in our thighs so that even during times of famine, we are able to feed and sustain our offspring. Chunky thighs are evolutionary magic!

Adria - That each mother's milk is tailored specifically for her own baby and changes constantly based on the baby's needs.

Willma - It contains healing cells - stem cells, HAMLET cells, memory B cells (they get activated with the “healing kiss”)...

Martina - Contains LEPTIN a hormone that controls appetite! Preventing over eating and hence chikdhood obesity!"

Georgia - I don't know if I could pick just one! Probably the ability for breast milk to be tailored specifically to the baby's needs and it's immune boosting ability

Annie - Boy girl breastmilk is dif

Joy - At each feed the saliva from your baby passes through your body and sends signals to your brain to produce more antibodies at the next feed. So from that saliva your body knows if your baby is becoming ill.

Carilena - It’s not just great for baby, it offers a reduced cancer risk for mommy

Gertrude - My favourite fact is that breast milk is ever changing based on the weather, the age of your baby and their health.

Catherine - It makes my hair grow
