Colostrum is an extremely nutritious yellowish type of milk that's formed and secreted by your breasts in late pregnancy. Colostrum is low in fat and carbohydrates and rich in proteins and antibodies. The antibodies in colostrum are protective substances that help your baby fight infection; this is one reason why one of the most important things you can do for your baby is make sure that he breastfeed early and often. After you give birth colostrum takes a few days to gradually change to mature milk.
Lactation Consultant Anne Smith has some more information about colostrum and offers some advice that will help you get started breastfeeding.
