Human Milk Proteins Inhibit Bacteria M. Luteus - Breastfeeding Benefits for Toddlers, Too!



Vicky Green, first year biosciences student at South Devon College in the U.K., has conducted a microbiology research project that appears to lend further support to an often overlooked fact: human milk is powerfully beneficial for toddlers, too! In fact, one thing we know from lactation sciences is that as a baby ages, milk from mom changes to fit a child's immunological needs. This includes becoming more concentrated and power-packed in fighting viruses and bacterial infections with each small amount of milk consumed by a busy, bustling toddler on the go.

Green told The Huffington Post that she and her classmate, Emma Browne, "...decided to test whether antimicrobial properties of breastmilk changes the older the child is feeding for a small microbiology project."

In her experiment, Green has two samples - one (BmA) from a mother nursing her 15 month old baby, and another (BmB) from a mother nursing her 3 year old toddler. [Additional information on the natural human weaning process.] Bacteria M. Luteus was added to the petri dishes as a small white disc, and soaked in the two samples of human milk. The clear space around the remaining discs is where the proteins in the milk have inhibited the bacteria. Sample BmB has acted more quickly than sample BmA. Whether this is a statistically significant difference is not determined.

There could be several reasons for differences of results (mom of sample BmB may have further antibodies built up for M. Luteus, for example). However, both samples show that human milk is successful in breaking down the bacteria, and Green's findings align with research that demonstrates the milk of a nursing baby increases in immunological density with age. In this fashion, a baby receiving all nutrients from mother's milk ('exclusively breastfeeding') is given an all-day, all-night course of immunity boosting antibodies through her milk. An older toddler, who is receiving a smaller portion of nutrients via mom's milk, also receives this vital immunity boost, but in a lesser quantity of milk. To do so, the human body concentrates these antibodies into a smaller, powerful nursing session on-the-go, and the child has the support s/he needs as the immune system and brain continue on their rapid journey to full development. [The immune system and brain do not reach near-completion until approximately age 5, which tends to correlate with an age of natural weaning cessation.]

Green found similar results with E. coli and MRSA [Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus] as well. "I'm also doing [an experiment on] colostrum in a couple of weeks," writes Green, and concludes on her Facebook post, "The future is bright, the future is breastmilk."

Reasons to NOT Wear Your Baby Facing Out


Above infographic from Boba

9 Reasons NOT to Carry Your Baby Facing Out

1) It does not support your baby's legs.

2) It makes it tougher for the wearer to carry baby (babies naturally fit curved tummy to chest).

3) It places your baby in an arched or hollow back position which places pressure on baby's spine.

4) It places too much pressure on a baby's pelvis, and may chaff the inner thighs of your baby.

5) It may overstimulate your baby, leading to increased anxiety and disorientation, or sleep troubles even when baby is tired.

6) It does not support baby's head or neck.

7) It makes thermoregulation (baby's internal core temperature being regulated by a caring adult's body temperature) more difficult.

8) It makes responding to baby's cues more difficult (or unable to read facial/non-verbal cues).

9) It throws off baby's center of gravity, does not improve their balance, but can hinder this, and isn't great for a parent's back either.

Above example from The Eco Friendly Family

When selecting your favorite carrier or wrap, opt for one that supports the thighs from hips to knees, and does not 'dangle' baby from the crotch. Wear your little one facing in (chest or back) and ensure his or her airway is always visible and not covered.

Celebration of the Breast Calendars

With Holly Milkowski of Mama's Milk, No Chaser


We are excited to announce these new Celebration of the Breast Calendars from Mama's Milk, No Chaser. Holly Milkowski writes, "This is an idea that was inspired by Nicole Deelah of Sage Beginnings Doula Services, and professionally shot by Blue Fitzcarraldo of Blue Fitz Photography. We had an open call for any and all women who wished to be involved and welcomed those who wanted to participate in either version of the calendar [Vital or Taboo]."

Milkowski continues, "It was a fun and beautiful project to work on. Each month explores different themes that speak of the female breast’s power: what it is, how it works, what it looks like, what it does, its simultaneous oppression and influence. We have within this calendar a monthly cycle framing the history and functions of the very body part that defines our species."

"The female breast is life-giving. Fascinating. Unique. A marker of milestones. Misunderstood. All the while, totally, utterly normal. For a variety of reasons, we believe everyone benefits from getting used to seeing breasts — especially used as biologically intended, reflected in art, for education, or otherwise for sexual expression as the owner of the breast chooses."

Milkowski and her team made two versions of this calendar. *


Vital… 

is bright and gorgeous. Perfect for an office wall, or a kitchen fridge.

Taboo… 

is provocative and challenges social expectations. (Please be aware this calendar contains what some may consider to be mature themes and/or suggestive imagery).

* Images above are examples of what you’ll find inside. 

Too hard to choose? If you decide to purchase both in the same order, you will receive a special discount — a savings of $10! Better yet, all proceeds go to a great cause (read more on that below).

THANK YOU for supporting The Breast better than any bra ever could. 🙂

U.S. shipping is included; for international orders, please email MilkowskiHolly@gmail.com


 






About the Proceeds 
Proceeds from these calendars will go directly to The INTACT Network and Intact Houston. These are not-for-profit organizations directed by Saving Our Sons, whose mission is to bring an end to the forced genital cutting of minors and ensure equal genital autonomy rights for all. All funds donated are used for educational materials, hosting local awareness-raising events/presentations, and protecting those who are at risk of unnecessary genital harm.


Kinderpack




We love Kindercarry's Kinderpack! Especially for bigger/taller/heavier babies, toddlers and children -- this is the most comfortable carrier we have tried, and it is a favorite among our local babywearing lending library. When Peaceful Parenting began (2005) there was no such thing as a comfortable carrier for a heavy/large baby or toddler. With the Kinderpack we can comfortably babywear for many hours, day after day, and do so with special needs children as well. It is truly a blessing in babywearing, and one we'd love everyone to experience. You can learn more about Kinderpacks and their small-batch, USA handmade construction at Kindercarry.com


Each Kinderpack below comes to you brand new, with tags attached, in its original packaging, with all accompanying booklets and papers. The pack has never been tried on unless noted. Photos are of the actual carrier you will receive and the listing will be removed from this page upon purchase. Most packs below have Plus padding straps because they are perfect for every body type and can be adjusted for the most comfortable babywearing fit for parents of all sizes. New Kinderpacks below include FREE 2-day priority shipping in the United States and to APO/FPO addresses. International shipping is $16 to Canada and $28 to all other nations. After purchasing your Kinderpack, send international shipping via PayPal to PeacefulParents@gmail.com and include a note with your mailing address or email this as well.

With each Kinderpack you'll receive two Born 2B Worn advocacy bracelets in cool colors (blue/purple/teal) and warm colors (red/orange/hot pink).


Note: No one at Peaceful Parenting has been given any incentive of any kind to speak upon Kinderpacks. We love Kinderpacks, have shared locally for many years, and would like to help other families have access to one that fits their needs. Packs were purchased brand new, directly from Kindercarry, at full retail costs plus shipping. Any pack sold for less is one we lose funds on. Many of these Kinderpacks were to be included in our Birth and Babies Lending Library, however, Hurricane Matthew's flooding impacted us significantly and we have had to temporarily close the lending library while we work on recovery and replacement efforts. Because of this impact, we'd like these new Kinderpacks to find families who can put them to use.

Any amount donated beyond retail/shipping/fees/taxes goes toward Peaceful Parenting education at maternity and baby expos where materials are given freely to new and expecting families; as well as toward the non-profit work that Peaceful Parenting takes on (birth, breastfeeding, baby care supplies and support for low-income families, mothers, and to orphanages overseas). If you have a Kinderpack you'd like to give toward this effort (to share freely with another family in need, or to send with an orphanage volunteer working with babies/toddlers), write to PeacefulParents@gmail.com

Email is responded to within 24 hours. If you do not receive a response, please check the email address you are sending to, or your junk/spam filter.

Four different options to purchase: 

1) Make a charitable donation (KP amount or more) to Peaceful Parenting at PayPal.com via Friends/Family to PeacefulParents@gmail.com Include your address and pack selection. [PayPal does not take a percentage with this option, making it a not-for-profit gift in exchange for your Kinderpack]

2) Click the Purchase button under the Kinderpack you wish to buy. [PayPal takes a percentage with this option and it is processed as a Goods Transaction]

3) Send via check or money order to:
Peaceful Parenting
P.O. Box 1302
Virginia Beach, VA 23451
*personal checks will have to clear before Kinderpack is sent; email PeacefulParents@gmail.com before sending check so that your new KP is held for you

4) If you are local to Virginia Beach and would like to meet, please email. We have regular fitting dates with parents in the community, attend the majority of maternity and baby expos in the area, and would be happy to meet with you anytime.
