As nature begins the process of preparing for your baby's very firts nutritional needs, many changes begins to happin in your breasts. This happens long before y our baby is born, round about the sixteenth week of pregnancy. Then by the time your little treasure is born, your body will be prepared to supply him with the amazing food which is called colostrum.

I cannot stretch this point enough to everyone out there, the first milk is the most important food for your baby. So important that it could well be the most important food your baby will ever have. This is the first milk, which is produced during the first few days before the real milk is produced.

Colostrum is more than food, it is like giving your little treasures his very first immunization, and it all happens naturally. Mother nature intended it that way. It meets all your new born's needs to perfection. He will therefor receive the exact amount he needs every time you feed him during the first few days.

Colostrum is a thick sticky substance, a lot different from the normal breast milk. Many even refer to it as liquid gold, and it is always made to perfection. Just as nature intended the composition of colostrum is different from that of the later milk. It is much higher in proteins, minerals, sodium, potassium, vitamin A and E.

Colostrum is lower in lactose, lower in fat fat and also lower in carbohydrates. Then again very high in secretory IgA, which is a major anti infection agent. It is packed with the protective white cells which destroys bacteria and viruses. Colostrum also acts as a laxative, which stimulates the passage of meconium, the thick, sticky black first stools, which decreases your baby’s chances of getting jaundice.

It may be that you have not yet felt your breasts fill with milk, or you have not even sprung a leak yet, you have not need to worry that your baby is not getting enough colostrum yet. You can be assured that your little treasure is getting what he needs. Your baby’s body is experiencing little mysterious, wonderful magical changes every time you nurse him.

Colostrum digests quickly, and also stabilizes your baby’s blood sugar. It builds a barrier to infections for your baby's body. And it establishes the beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.

It is an immune booster and builder, and also contributes to many growth factors in your baby's body. It is a living fluid, it has the ability to build and to change your baby’s gut and to prepare and also to protect your baby from all sorts and types of germs and infections. Magical isn't it?

There are endless reasons why you should give your baby as much colostrum as early as possible.

Every single day holds the possibility of a miracle.
