Breast milk is very healthy for babies. But most of us don't know the fact that the nutrients of breast milk change depending upon your baby's gender. The milk isn't the same.
The gender of the baby determines the composition of the breast milk, according to a new study. The amount of proteins, minerals, sugars, vitamins etc do change with the gender.
After studying the composition of milk, researchers determined that the woman's body produces milk suitable to the specific gender.
When a woman delivers a girl, the breast milk tends to have more Calcium and when a woman delivers a male, protein levels tend to be higher in the milk.
Also, the pattern of breastfeeding could change depending upon the gender of the baby.
In fact, the foetes during its developmental stages, tends to release certain hormonal signals. This will help the body to prepare the composition of the milk.
The human body knows what a growing baby requires; a girl baby may need different nutrients and a boy may need different nutrients and this is exactly what breast milk is about.
Also, the composition of the milk tends to undergo several changes during the growth cycle of the baby. As the nutritional requirement tends to change once the baby starts growing, the composition of the milk changes to suit that requirement.
