Mothering Mag.

Did you all see this? Researchers believe that they have found stem cells in human milk. So much for all those cord banks charging parents to save their baby's umbilical cords.

I'd love to see how the formula company's are going to try and compete with this, like they attempted with DHA & ARA & Iron.

Re: Mothering Mag.

Yeah, I heard about that. Crazy, huh? I don't think the formula companies will even try.

Re: Mothering Mag.

I personally think its more important for babies to get all of the blood from the placenta until the cord stop pulsing rather than removing blood from it and banking it. I thinks its a pretty shady practice. And I'm not surprised about the stem cells, breastmilk is miracle food

Re: Mothering Mag.

Related to this ~ I work in a lab that studies proteomics (the proteins in a sample). We deal with a ton of different stuff, so I'm surprised we haven't gotten in samples of breastmilk. I'm sure that there would be some very interesting proteins in that!
