    00:01 So in a nutshell, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the WHO (World Health Organization) recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first year of life.

    00:13 Remember, breastfeeding offers benefits for the baby, the birthing person, the community and has long term health benefits both for the child and for the birthing person.

    00:24 Passive immunity is transferred from the breastfeeding person to the baby through the breast milk.

    00:31 Prolactin is responsible for milk production.

    00:35 Prolactin Oxytocin, on the other hand is responsible for the let down allowing the milk to come out.

    00:43 Effective breastfeeding is noted by weight gain and more than 6 wet diapers and 3 stools by day 4.

    00:52 Breast milk should never ever ever be microwaved.

    00:57 The bottle when we're using it to bottle feed should be held at an angle so that the nipple stays full.

    01:05 Bottle-fed babies should be fed about every 3-4 hours.

    01:10 Prepared formula should be used within 2 hours of preparation if it's at room temperature.

    01:17 Unused prepared formula on the other hand can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

    01:24 So that's infant nutrition in a nutshell.
