Frozen Breastmilk Pops: a recipe to get your baby more nutrients
Breastmilk is the most complete form of nutrition for infants. There are hundreds of healthy substances in breastmilk: probiotics, growth factors, and hormones to name a few. These substances are linked to health, growth, immunity, and development.
What do those words mean in practical terms? Well, experts credit breastmilk to everything from lower incidents of infectious disease (think ickies like diarrhea, ear infections, and more) as well as improved dental health, decreased risk of eczema and food allergies, and decreased risk of serious illness.
The Moss & Fawn Feeder is a perfect way to get your baby more breastmilk, even when starting solids. Many moms use The Feeder to serve their child breastmilk pops. Have a teething baby? This recipe will keep your babe busy, get them extra nutrients, and act as a natural teething solution.
Here’s how to make them:
Simply freeze breast milk in an ice cube tray and once frozen fill the feeder. If the cube is too large just chop into a smaller chuck to fill feeder. If you have already introduced solids you can get creative and mix in purees with the breastmilk such as butternut squash or strawberries.
