Shaping The Gut Microbiota By Breastfeeding
By - Danone Nutricia Academy

Breastfeeding affects infant gut microbiota directly - by exposure to milk microbiota and indirectly - by maternal milk factors that affect bacterial growth and metabolism.

 

The ability of breast milk to modulate the neonates early gut microbiota has an important role to enhance infant health by having a long lasting effect on local and systemic immune system.
