What's in Breastmilk?

Here's a brief overview of the components of breastmilk and the nutrients they

provide:

Vitamins

Vitamin A


Necessary for healthy vision.




Vitamin D


To help build strong bones and teeth.




Vitamin E


To protect the cell membranes in the eyes and lungs




Vitamin K


Involved in the production of blood clotting factors that help reduce bleeding.




Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)


A strong antioxident that helps heal the body, support the immune system, and aid in iron absorption.




Vitamin B6


Required for healthy brain development.




Vitamin B12


Needed for cell growth and early development of the nervous system. Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), and Pantothenic Acid (B5): to help convert food into energy that the body needs to grow, develop, and function. B vitamins are also necessary for the skin, hair, eyes, and the nervous system including the brain.





Proteins:

Secretory IgA


Works to protect your baby from viruses and bacteria. It also helps to protect against E. Coli and possible allergies. Other immunoglobulins found in breastmilk, including IgG and IgM, also help protect against bacterial and viral infections.




Lactoferrin


Inhibits the growth of iron-dependent bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.




Lysozyme


Is an enzyme that protects against E.Coli and Salmonella. It also promotes the growth of healthy intestinal flora and has anti-inflammatory functions.




Bifidus factor


Supports the growth of lactobacillus which protects against harmful bacteria by creating an acidic environment where it cannot survive.





Fats:

Long Chain Fatty Acids


Breastmilk contains fats that are essential to your baby's overall health. These fats are necessary for brain development, absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, and are a primary source of calories. Long chain fatty acids found in breastmilk are needed for brain, retina, and nervous system development, and are deposited in the brain during the last trimester of pregnancy.




Lactose


Lactose is the primary carbohydrate found in human milk. It accounts for approximately 40% of the total calories provided by breastmilk. Lactose improves the absorption of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium, and also helps fight disease and promotes the growth of healthy bacteria in the stomach.





Cooling and Storing

 

Did you know:

Bacteria in fresh milk doubles every 20 minutes while stored at room temperature, according to the FDA.

Freshly pumped breastmilk needs to be cooled and stored in a freezer or refrigerator. Research shows that storing breastmilk at room temperature can:

  • lead to rapid bacterial growth, reducing both the nutritional value of breastmilk (since bacteria consume the nutrients in the milk) and its immunological value (as breastmilk uses up its immune defenses to fight off the bacteria.)

  • cause cellular damage due to an increase the amount of free fatty acids in the milk.

  • adversely affect the intestinal microbiota, known to play a major role in nutrition, metabolism, protection against pathogens, development of the immune system and brain.

Quick cooling protects the nutritional and immunological value of your milk.

It is beneficial to cool breast milk as quickly as possible so that the immunological properties inside go towards baby’s nutrition rather than fighting bacterial growth. The unique geometry of nanobébé’s Breastmilk Bottle (and Storage Bags) allows breast milk to be spread into a thin layer that cools quickly, reaching its ideal refrigerated temperatures 2-3 times faster than standard bottles.

Protecting your breastmilk from nutrient-damaging temperatures. 

Did you know:

Heating milk over 40°C/104°F causes deterioration of the milk’s immunological proteins and enzymes. Overheating pumped breastmilk may also reduce fat absorption which could cause less caloric intake for your baby.

Nanobébé's revolutionary bottle shape

allows breastmilk to be spread thin across the surface area and thereby warming quickly and evenly. Now you or a caregiver can warm the bottle at safe temperatures and feed baby promptly without destroying your precious breastmilk nutrients by overheating.

Finally, you can speed up prep time without exposing
breastmilk to nutrient-damaging temperatures.

Overheating Breastmilk Causes Nutritional Damage

Recent scientific research has proven that the temperature and the storage of human milk, plays a vital role in preserving its natural nutrients.
