Breastfeeding: How the components of breast milk help develop the circadian rhythms of a baby

Quick Summary: Breastfeeding info for parents. New review paper from Mexico on how the complex nutritive and non-nutritive components of breast milk change over the day/night to help a baby develop its own circadian clock. The paper includes a great description of the difference between these components in human milk vs infant formula.

Breastfeeding and parent info: In breast milk, the concentration of both nutritive and non-nutritive milk components change over the day and night according to the circadian rhythms of the mother.
