Breast milk has many nutrients and immune factors that are important for the baby’s health and growth. These include lipids, proteins/peptides, growth factors, antibodies, and Human Milk Oligosaccharides. in this pilot study, we aim to focus on the Human Milk Oligosaccharides in the breast milk of people with IBD compared to people without IBD.
About this Study
The purpose of this study is to better understand the differences in breast milk between mothers with IBD and mothers who don’t have IBD. We also want to see how infant health might be impacted by these possible differences in the breast milk between these two groups of mothers.
What does it involve?
Participants can complete questionnaires, either online, over the phone, or in person, throughout the study. As well, we’re asking participants to provide samples of their breast milk at two different times, when your infant is 1 month and 3 months old. We will also ask for your consent to collect information about your infant’s growth and overall health.
