Q:

Does all women have same proportion of foremilk and hindmilk? Does baby weight entirely depends only on the hindmilk? Whether foremilk doesn't have any nutrition?



Sonali Shivlani

Formula has been designed keeping baby's nutrition in mind and hence it surely has most of the nutrients needed by the baby. However it does not have anti bodies and it does not change as per the needs of the baby. Fore milk and hind milk composition depends on how fast baby empties the breast.Hind milk is richer in fats and protein and hence important for the baby. However as a combination fore milk and hind milk both contribute to the weight gain.

Ok, got it. Thx Sonali
