Monitoring mother's milk through ages and stages!
So of course, once I got settled into life as a parent of a newborn, I immediately started planning a science project...
While I was pregnant, I knew I would want to breastfeed after she was born. I knew that breast milk contains a ton of vital nutrients, and that the composition of the milk changes over time to meet the demands of a growing baby. I wondered... what would my milk look like under the microscope? It would be SO cool to see something that I made to feed my baby, so close like that! Further, I wondered, would I even be able to notice any changes if I looked at it again in the future?
