More on prebiotics in human milk

What is so sad is that advertising of artificial infant milk, in which claims are made about additives, encourage parents to switch to these products and stop or reduce breastfeeding.  What that means is that the babies then receive greatly REDUCED prebiotics and less of other protective factors. Let's just look at one major component of human milk, oligosaccharides, which serve as one of the prebiotics in breastmilk. They are there in a variety of different sorts, and they are there in a large amount.
