What effects does colostrum powder have on a baby?

By Hey Bee February 4 2020 in Babycare

The first yellow milk(fluid) produced in breasts is called colostrum. It is the first stage of breast milk production. Colostrum is thicker than your usual breast milk. Colostrum/yellow milk lasts until the transitional phase or mature milk is produced i.e. till second or fifth day after the birth. Colostrum is like a child’s first immunisation, it is full of antibodies, white blood cells and other immune properties.

Benefits of Colostrum for the baby are:

1.) Builds a strong immune system

2.) Creates a tough layer on baby’s stomach and intestines to fight with germs that cause illness.

3.) It serves as a laxative that helps your baby pass the first dark stool/poop

4.) Prevents from jaundice

5.) Perfect blend of nutrients to make the child’s brain, eyes and heart strong

6.) Prevents low blood sugar in newborns

A baby should take 1-4 table spoons of colostrum per day

Note: Do not give honey or any other food substance during the birth, the first yellow milk is a great source of nutrition.
