Why measure breast milk omega-3s?

    • Omega-3 DHA is an important component of a baby’s developing brain
    • Baby’s best source for nutrition, including omega-3 DHA, is breast milk
    • Breast milk from American mothers is very low in omega-3 DHA
    • Moms can increase the amount of omega-3 DHA in their breast milk through diet and/or supplements
    • The amount of omega-3 DHA in the blood is related to the amount in breast milk, and moms can begin to increase their omega-3 DHA levels during pregnancy
    • The only way to know how much omega-3 DHA your baby is getting through breast milk is by measuring it – with the Mother’s Milk DHA Test.
