  • Does Exclusive Breastfeeding Matter? Yes.

    We all need bacteria (also called flora) in our digestive tract to help our immune system work and get the most energy from our food, babies are the same! Your baby has a sterile gut until birth - that means her digestive tract is a blank slate.

    A vaginally delivered baby gets exposed to mom’s good bacteria during the birth process – thanks mom! A c-section baby will get his first dose of bacteria from the environment – microbes may come from the nurses and other babies in close proximity.

  • THE PORTLAND MIRACLE MILK STROLL

    Saturday May 10th all over the US, military bases and even the UK families gathered and walked together to build awareness about the need for donated breast milk. The 1st Annual Miracle Milk Mother’s Day Stroll was initiated by Best for Babes, a nationwide non-profit that helps moms reach their breastfeeding goals by lowering barriers (or Booby Traps).
  • HELP RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT DONOR MILK!

    New research about breast milk shows how much more there is to learn about this dynamic fluid. It contains over 200,000 different elements, each created specifically to nourish human babies. Can you imagine a label that listed 200,000 ingredients? Breast milk contains a long list of proteins, enzymes, all vitamins (except K) and over 30 oligosaccharides. It would be impossible to replicate human milk in a food lab.
