Milk Samples

baby growth

Two 25ml samples of human breast milk pumped from the same woman, at the same time to illustrate what human breast milk looks like, and how human breast milk can vary. The left hand sample is Foremilk. Foremilk has a higher water content and a lower fat content to satisfy thirst. The right hand sample is Hindmilk. Hindmilk has a lower water content and a higher fat content to satisfy hunger. Although the names may suggest otherwise, hindmilk and foremilk do not flow one after the other respectively. As breastmilk is made continuously including and during the feed itself, the milk is constantly switching between Foremilk and Hindmilk until the baby has had enough
