But the mother who gave birth at the age of 9 months of pregnancy, while the other mothers at the age of 7 months of pregnancy. Well, the milk is produced in accordance with the needs of babies born in each of the gestational age. Thus, the composition of breast milk in women who gave birth at the age of 9 months of pregnancy is intended for the needs of babies born at the gestational age. Likewise, the composition of breast milk in women who gave birth at seven months gestation intended only for the baby.

In addition, breast milk in women who are both gave birth at the age of 9 months of pregnancy is different, because the bacteria have ever had on each mother is different.

So, this milk to prepare the baby to digest milk digestion mature. Like a newborn baby, the first just drink milk, then start given semi-solid food, then solid food. Well, ASI also like that.

Moreover, in different times, the content of the milk was not the same. So, in the first 5-10 minutes, the milk that comes out, is called fore milk, it is more liquid / watery, lighter, more easily digested by the baby's gut. Over 10 minutes or so called hind milk, milk composition is more viscous, with protein, fat and carbohydrate is more dense.

When born, the immune system, the fast descent, while the immune system in infants slowly rising. Well, with breast-fed babies receive stimuli endurance, to get faster to raise it. This is usually called active and passive immunity.
