On this Valentine's day, Mallory Smother posted a photo of two side-by-side bags of her pumped breast milk. The bag placed at the right side contains milk pumped on the second day when her baby got sick.
The difference was indicating the baby's health condition.
"Mammary gland receptors interpret the baby spit backwash for bacteria and viruses and, if they detect something amiss, Mom's body will actually change the milk's immunological composition, tailoring it to the baby's particular pathogens by producing customized antibodies."
Royal College of Midwives policy advisor Janet Fyle told HuffPost UK, "The body does wonderful things and so does breast milk. The saliva reaction she talks about is when the nipple absorbs bacteria and realizes the baby is unwell. So is possible -- never underestimate the power of the body."
