Why is Breast Milk Important?

The National Department of Health and the World Health Organization recommend feeding babies breast milk for 6 months or longer due to its wealth of health benefits for early and long-term development.

Vitamins & Minerals

Vitamins are essential for your baby's growth and development. If you're a healthy mom who eats a well-balanced diet, your breast milk contains most, if not all the vitamins that your healthy full-term baby needs.

However, for the most part, your breast milk has enough custom-made nutrition full of all the nutrients, including vitamins, to support your child as they grow. Here are the main vitamins found in breast milk.

Vitamins & Minerals

Breastmilk contains the following vitamins:

Vitamin A - necessary for healthy vision.

Vitamin D - helps to build strong bones and teeth.

Vitamin E - protects the cell membranes in the eyes and the lungs.

Vitamin K- is involved in the production of blood clotting factors that help to stop bleeding.

Vitamins & Minerals

Breastmilk contains the following vitamins:

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) - is a strong antioxidant. It helps to heal the body, support the immune system, and aid in the body's absorption of iron.

Vitamin B6 - required for healthy brain development.

Folate - contributes to the health and development of children.

Vitamin B12 - needed for cell growth and the early growth and development of the nervous system

Vitamins & Minerals

Breastmilk contains the following vitamins:

Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), and Pantothenic Acid (B5)

All B vitamins help to convert food into energy that the body needs to grow, develop, and function. They are also necessary for the skin, hair, eyes, and the nervous system including the brain. Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid can be found in breast milk at levels that depend on your diet.

Protects Your Breastmilk Nutrients

Developed with the help of pediatricians, lactation consultants, and biomedical engineers, the Nanobebe Breastmilk Feeding Bottle is the first to prioritize preservation of the liquid within, by spreading the milk into a thin layer, the design enables both quicker cooling and warming to preserve breast milk from nutrient damaging temperatures and prevent bacterial growth

Because Nutrients Matter

Quick Cooling & Safe Warming

Speed up prep time without exposing breast milk to nutrient damaging temperatures.

It is beneficial to cool breast milk as quickly as possible, so that the immunological properties inside go towards baby’s nutrition rather than fighting bacterial growth.
