28. Your child will have a stronger immune system
Colostrum contains huge amounts of immune-boosting antibodies, proteins peptides and transfer factor. Transfer factor appears to transfer information to major immune cells about specific pathogens. The cells destroy these pathogens if they are ever encountered As your newborn suckles, all of these nutrients are absorbed through the baby's permeable intestine. After about six hours, the baby's gut seals up and the colostrum becomes sweet with sugar. Mucus begins to line your baby's intestines and the sugar feeds the microflora. The microflora then stick to the mucus. This is how babies get a fully functioning immune system.1
