Hello,
I've heard that milk from mothers of boys is different from from milk from mothers of girls. Anyone have an idea about that ? Is that just a myth ? or would the hormones play a role ? if anyone has any scientific based information or website or any useful source , I would be grateful for him .

According to a new article in Nature (Dec 23/30), breast milk produced for boys contains more protein and fat than breast milk produced for girls.

“We know that boys grow faster than girls, and perhaps this is due to the milk, or the milk may be responding to the commands of the child,” said Ginna Wall, coordinator of lactation services at University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle.
