Excuse me, morning. R nWant to ask. R n r n Can breastfeeding a non-biological child change the child’s genetic makeup?

1 Answer:

Hi Soraya .. Thank you for the question given.


Breast milk is a very important source of nutrition for babies and is very good for breastfeeding babies. The benefits of breastfeeding include: to increase the immune system of the baby, increase the emotional relationship between mother and baby, exclusive breastfeeding for the baby can be a natural birth control for the mother, prevent the baby from infection, increase bone strength.


Breastfeeding a child who is not a biological child will not change a child's genetic makeup. Because genetics is something that is passed down from an individual to their offspring through a reproductive process. The genes contain genetic information and cannot be changed only by breastfeeding that does not come from the birth mother.
