Human milk can solely sustain an infant's life, but did you know there are more studies on coffee, wine and tomatoes than breast milk? Come hear from two internationally renowned human milk researchers who are trying to change just that. They move beyond human milk's traditional nutrient composition and dive deep into milk's complex carbohydrates (oligosaccharides) and microbiome and discuss how these components may be important for infant health and well being.
