“The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am”

Breast milk is truly an amazing thing, and far beyond anything that we can make to replace it. It even adapts to the specific needs of the baby. I recommend this long fascinating article if you’re at all interested:

The Stranger: The More I Learn About Breast Milk, the More Amazed I Am

Something that may have even more benefits than those mentioned in the article.
