Breast milk flow. View of a crying 3 month old baby boy causing the breast milk of its mother to flow in squirts. The emotional reaction of the lactating mother is such that her crying baby can cause spontaneous milk flow such as this. Human milk contains the ideal balance of nutrients for the baby and provides valuable antibodies which protect the child against infections such as gastroenteritis. It also provides the mother and child with a physical closeness which strengthens the bond between them.
