Prior to the milk ejection reflex, very little milk can be removed, so it is critical for successful nursing (Young et al. 1996; Kent et al. 2008). This is why mothers often get less milk from pumping alone: because the touch receptors on the areola are not stimulated in the same way as by the baby’s mouth so there is less oxytocin release and therefore less milk ejection. Oxytocin also prevents the unsuckled breast from ejecting milk to maintain positive pressure in that breast so the baby can nurse more easily from that side when the time comes.

Human milk fatty acids show extreme sensitivity to maternal nutrition and are implicated in neurological development, specifically docosahexaenoic acid, DHA (Innis 2014). Major mineral concentration (Ca, Mg, Ph, Na, K) is not affected by maternal intake (Kent et al. 2009). However, vitamin content is dependent on maternal stores and intake. Certain nutrients, such as folate and calcium, may be maintained in breast milk at the expense of the mother. Conversely, increasing nutritional supplements beyond RDA recommendations does not increase the levels in breast milk, with the exception of vitamin B6, vitamin D, iodine, and selenium.
