I *know* I remember seeing a study a few years back (I believe it was an Israeli study) about the chemistry of a baby's saliva telling the mother's breast what it's milk content should be.  IOW, baby's saliva influenced the content of the milk.


Does anyone know where I can find this study?  I've tried every possible phrase in google and it's not coming up for me.

Do a pubmed search (it's free). When searching, include two key words and the word "AND" b/twn them in bold. For example, "breastmilk AND saliva":


Science Daily is another great way to find papers:


In the meantime, I'll try to help you find it...
