Fast facts on nutrition
Vitamins are essential organic compounds that the human body cannot synthesize.
The human body requires seven major types of nutrients.
Micronutrients are important but required in smaller amounts.
Not all nutrients provide energy but are still important, such as water and fiber.
With the exception of vitamin D, breast milk contains everything a baby requires for proper development during the first six months of life
However, if your overall diet does not provide sufficient amounts of nutrients, it can affect both the quality of your breast milk and your own health
Generally, an ounce (28 ml) of breast milk contains 19–23 calories, with 3.6–4.8% from protein, 28.8–32.4% from fat and 26.8–31.2% from carbs, mostly lactose
The composition of breast milk is highly regulated, and your diet only has limited effects on the concentrations of some nutrients .
Unlike baby formula, the calorie content and composition of breast milk varies. Breast milk changes during each feeding and throughout your lactation period, in order to meet the needs of your baby
At the beginning of a feeding, the milk is more watery and usually quenches the baby’s thirst. The milk that comes later is thicker, higher in fat and more nutritious.
In fact, this milk may contain 2–3 times as much fat as milk from the beginning of a feeding, and 7–11 more calories per ounce
Therefore, to get to the most nutritious milk, it’s important that your baby “empties” one breast before switching to the other.
