Krista Gray is a lactation counselor and mother to four, including b/b twins. In this post she talks about how a mother’s breastmilk can help premature newborns. I had no idea that preterm milk was qualitatively different than full-term milk and medicinal in its nutritive properties. Krista also mentions the science of milk fortification for preemies. I was surprised by what the research actually shows.
Virginia Woodruff founded Great Moments in Parenting and is the mother of twin girls and a singleton. In this post she talks about how we, as humans, have the greatest appreciation for the products of our hardest work, regardless of their value to others. What do we work hardest of all on? Our kids, of course.
