What Is The Difference Between Breastmilk And Formula?

Breastmilk is always changing to meet the needs of your baby.  When you are exposed to illness the antibodies pass from the breastmilk directly to your baby.  The various foods you eat change the flavor of your milk exposing your baby to different tastes.  The living cells, antibodies, germ fighting proteins, carbohydrates, and enzymes cannot be packaged in a can.
