The exceptional properties of human milk are the: numerous powerful substances in human colostrum and milk which protect against infectious diseases; unique biochemical properties which assure the best combination of energy and nutrients for the growing child; remarkable behavioural interactions of mother and child which arise from breastfeeding; significantly lower cost when compared to any other form of infant substitute feeding.
