BabyDot™ is in the shape of a dot. It is a simple way for moms to know when stored breast milk is spoiled and should be thrown away.
The BabyDot™ label changes color when stored breast milk is no longer safe for infants to drink. BabyDot™ is the only product that expires at the same rate as the milk spoils.
Testing shows that fresh breast milk tends to last between 5 and 8 days in the refrigerator. Until BabyDot™ there was no easy way for moms to figure out when their breast milk had spoiled.
- In response to the baby's sucking, the mother's body releases a hormone that makes her uterus contract and get smaller.
- Many mothers also get emotional benefits from breastfeeding because of the closeness of this interaction with the baby and from the satisfaction of helping to nourish their babies.
- Some research suggest that mothers who breastfeed their babies have fewer episodes of post-delivery depression.
- There is evolving evidence to indicate that certain types of cancer (such as breast, uterus, and ovarian cancer) occur less often in mothers who have breastfed their babies.
- Many societies and cultures also encourage mothers to breastfeed, which can offer support to a new mother.
