  • What if your breast milk is actually killing the probiotic you are giving?
  • Did you know that probiotics have to be alive for it to give health benefits?
  • Do you know that not all probiotics are equal? The benefits are based on the specific strain!

If you have questions and are wondering what you should do, read on below…

Have you ever wondered why breast milk can be left out longer than normal formula milk?

CDC guidelines for breast milk state that freshly expressed or pumped milk can be stored:

  • At room temperature (77┬░F or colder) for up to 4 hours.
  • In the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Whereas CDC guidelines for prepared infant formula states that formula can spoil if it is left out at room temperature.

  • Use prepared infant formula within 2 hours of preparation and within one hour from when feeding begins.
  • If you do not start to use the prepared infant formula within 2 hours, immediately store the bottle in the fridge and use it within 24 hours.

The reason why breast milk can stay out so long is because breast milk has many antibacterial properties. It has antibodies along with enzymes and leukocytes that inhibit bacteria.

Why it is important to choose a probiotic that is compatible with breast milk

Human milk is the gold standard in infant nutrition. It plays an enormous role in infant health development. Its secret is its ingenious and unique composition. Human milk is comprised of vital nutrients and distinct bioactive molecules that the infant needs for growth and development. Take note of the antimicrobial components that make a significant portion of breast milk to protect the infant.

In a study by Minami, human breast milk is selective of probiotic strains that are beneficial for infant health. One of the key strains is Bifidobacterium Breve M16V. In this study, non-human derived probiotic strains failed to grow and even died out.

Choose a HUMAN strain Probiotic for better Health Benefits

Supplementation with Bifidobacterium Breve M16V is specifically beneficial at reducing the risk of allergic disorders in infants as well as protecting the vulnerable preterm infants against premature birth complications such as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and sepsis. M-16V has been demonstrated to promote early gut microbial colonization to support healthy growth and to shape a healthy gastrointestinal and immune system.
