"research tells us that the quality of a mother’s diet has little influence on her milk."
of course, better diet = better for mom!

I'm sure this is true generally, but I have to believe that if a mother isn't taking in certain nutrients, there is no way they can be in her milk, right? I mean, I know that what she does take in will go to the milk first, but if she's really deficient in certain things, there won't be enough in the milk or for her. Not really addressing the OP's question, because I'm sure she eats a reasonably balanced diet and has stated she takes a prenatal vitamin, but just a general observation because I hear this quite a lot and have always wondered.
