DHA in breastmilk should be enough for babies to build better brains
DHA in breastmilk should be enough for babies to build better brains-
Dr. Susan Carlson is the AJ Rice Professor of Nutrition and associate dean for research in the School of Health Professions at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.
Babies continue to build their brains and eyes after they're born, so they still need good amounts of iron and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from breastmilk or formula. Dr. Susan Carlson, who helped establish the guidelines for docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in infants and pregnant women recently spoke about DHA's role in a baby's life for the webinar series: Nutrition in the First 1,000 Days, which extends from the time of conception until a toddler turns two. In a series of videos for Nutrition4Kids, she turns her attention to breastmilk as an important source of DHA for babies. Others discuss why DHA is so important, the best sources for DHA, and DHA for infants and toddlers.
