Breast milk has been shown to be an excellent and continuous source of commensal and potentially probiotic bacteria to the infant gut. Our aim was to evaluate the dominant bacteria existing in breast milk of healthy women and the potential role of transit through the vagina in the acquisition of breast milk microbiota using the 16S rRNA amplified gene approach. Samples of breast milk were aseptically collected, at day 7 after delivery, from five mothers whose neonates were born by vaginal… CONTINUE READING
