What's colostrum and what do I need to do about it?

Starting at around 12-18 weeks, your body is going to start producing this protein-packed “liquid gold.” It’s the earliest form of breast milk that drips from your boob in a yellowish, clear, sticky concentrate that’s made up of protein, sugar, fat + immunity factors to protect your babe from germs in those first days of life. Colostrum coats the intestines + forms a barrier that seals to your babe’s insides to prepare them for a healthy life. It also kills harmful microorganisms and provides protection from inflammation. It’s basically a wonderful first meal for any babe that they’ll enjoy in very small doses as your milk starts to come in.
