I just had to share this: The science of breast milk: Latest research on nursing and milk vs. formula. Our bodies are SO much more amazing than even we know!

Very cool., TFS!

One thing that really stood out to me was that milk produced for boys might be fattier than milk produced for girls. My boys grew like weeds and my daughter was a slow gainer. In fact, I had a couple of the drs suggest supplementing with formula, which I told them there was no need for as she had plenty of wet/dirty diapers and if anything I could give her pumped milk which I had plenty of!
