Obstetrics - Pregnancy 16 Weeks

COLOSTRUM (Mother’s First Breast Milk)
You are in your 16th week of pregnancy and are now producing Mother’s first breast milk, colostrum. Colostrum is thick and clear to bright yellow in color. It is low in volume but full of wonderful things that your baby needs. It is the only food your baby needs for the first few days.

 

Colostrum:

  • Protects your infant against infection and diseases

  • The World Health Organization calls colostrum “Babies First Immunization”

  • Is high in protein (16 times more protein than in formula)

  • Reduces your baby’s risk of becoming jaundiced

  • Is easy for your baby to digest
