Mother gives more than 100 liters of breast milk to hospital
Amy Bormann, Wisconsin, USA , donated about 110 liters of breast milk to a local hospital. She was nursing her second son, Gresyon, when she realized she had extra milk. Then, she began researching how to properly withdraw and store breast milk.
Over time, Amy was able to store about 110 liters of breast milk in her freezer and decided to donate them to a local hospital. "I work in a neonatal care unit and I know how important breastmilk can be to premature babies," Amy said in an interview with the American channel WPXI. "It's such a simple process and I would like more moms who had extra milk to give it away, even a small amount makes a lot of difference," said Amy.
Although newborns generally do not have apparent teeth, most have at least a partially developed set of deciduous teeth or milk teeth that begin to appear generally six months after the birth. During the first years of life, all 20 deciduous teeth will erupt through the gums. Most children have the full set of deciduous teeth in their mouths by the age of three.
A study conducted by the University of Chicago in the United States revealed that the mother's voice on the phone comforts the children as much as a hug. The research, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, observed 60 girls, ages 7 to 12, who were subjected to stressful situations followed by monitoring.
