Wow!! DId you know...

I'm starting a new blog feature, because every once in a while I come across something AMAZING that I didn't know before, and because I'm a teacher by nature, I want to share this new amazing piece of information WITH.THE.WORLD!!!!!

So, here's what I've recently learned.

When you breastfeed your baby, her saliva actually COMMUNICATES with your breast via areola to tell your body exactly what antibodies, proteins, etc. she need right then!! So, if your baby is starting to get sick, or is low in some mineral or vitamin, your body knows to make your milk different to combat that sickness or to up that vitamin or mineral to even out your baby's body! How amazing is that?!

And here is where I read about this wonderful, God-created, amazing phenomenon.


  1. Such an amazing phenomenon, and so accurate that a mother can breastfeed an infant and a toddler at the same time and they will each receive different nourishment according to what they need. You just can't beat that! Breastfeeding is amazing!
