Boy milk vs. Girl milk…

Very interesting article on the differences between breast milk for boys or girls: http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2014/02/17/3946253.htm
I only have a boy, so I don’t have anything to compare it to, but I never really had an overproduction of milk. Thoughts? Anyone have both boys and girls to compare?

  1. This is really interesting… I only have a daughter, and my milk supply was out of control. I could have fed infants around the world if I had more time to pump!

  2. Yes, it’s true (and other studies have shown this before this one)! It isn’t so much an issue of amount of milk as the composition – so I wouldn’t expect over/undersupply to be sex-related. But we do know that the protein/fat/carb ratios vary for moms and boys and girls. Another reason your body is amazing!

  3. I have never heard of this before but I have two girls and produced an abundance of milk with both of them. My milk supply didn’t last as long with my second child but I had more than enough to share!
