Feeding in the first month of life.
Mother's milk contains all the nutrients needed by the child, and in the best qualitative and quantitative ratio.
Proteins of human milk in composition most similar to proteins of the child's own tissues. They contain all the vital amino acids, and although in human milk are much less than in the cow, but it's the proteins specific to the human body, especially useful and necessary for the development of the child.
Of fat in breast milk as much as in the cow, but the fat of human milk is better absorbed by the body of the child. In addition, their composition is sufficient essential fatty acids, which are hardly synthesized in the body. In cow's milk they contain little. Carbohydrate in human milk anymore.
It is composed of special agents (13-lactose), which favor the normal digestion of milk. In cow's milk of such substances is very small, which contributes to the development of a baby's gut of harmful germs and may cause gastro-intestinal disorders.
Contained in human milk vitamins and minerals best meets the needs of the growing organism. Calcium and phosphorus are in it for the best ratios, so the children fed breast milk, rarely get sick from rickets. Enough in human milk salts of iron, copper, zinc, cobalt and other minerals that affect the process of hematopoietic. The enzymes of milk contribute to a better digestion of food and are involved in metabolism. The hardest thing to digest fats, but in breast milk is a special enzyme (lipase), which almost halves the work on their assimilation. When boiling milk this enzyme is destroyed, and in cow's milk it is not at all.
