The breast milk of lactating mothers vaccinated against COVID-19 contains a significant supply of antibodies that may help protect nursing infants from the illness, according to new research from the University of Florida.
Clinicians should consider daily DHA supplements during pregnancy to reduce early preterm birth: Study
Daily supplements of 1,000 mg of DHA during pregnancy may reduce the risk of early pre-term birth in women with low levels of the omega-3, says a new study.
Researchers have found a link between HMO composition resulting from genetic polymorphisms, and language development in infancy. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs), the third most abundant solid component of human milk (HM), have been linked to a number of potential health benefits. In particular, both sialyllactose (SL) and 2’-fucosyllactose (2’-FL) have been implicated to benefit early cognitive development in preclinical studies.
First data from a new Nestlé Health Science sponsored study (PLATYPUS study), evaluating the safety and benefits of an amino acid-based formula (AAF) supplemented with two Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMO;2’FL and LNnT) in infants and young children with moderate to severe cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA), was presented at EAACI 2021.
Children who eat slower are less likely to be extroverted and impulsive, according to a new study co-led by the University at Buffalo and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Increased diversity of a mother’s gut microbiota during the third trimester of pregnancy may influence a child’s brain development and behavior, says a new study from Australia.
By looking at the gut bacteria of babies and their body mass index, researchers found that the bacteria in a baby's gut may play a role in future weight problems.
It is well known that each person's gut bacteria is vital for digestion and overall health, but when does that gut microbiome start?
