All breastmilk is the same? Myth busted about breastfeeding

Pregnancy and Postpartum Care for Everyone

Breast milk is a complex fluid composed of various elements, including protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, water, enzymes, and hormones. On average, breast milk consists of approximately 87% water, 7% lactose, 4% fat, and 1% protein. However, it’s important to note that this composition is not static and can vary from one parent to another. Furthermore, breast milk undergoes dynamic changes both within a single feeding and over time to meet the evolving needs of a growing child.
