Fat in breast milk: A babies brain growth is exponential in the first three years of life, and requires, most importantly people would argue, high quality fat for optimal growth. Instead of thinking supplements ( although DHA and ARA are critical ) also think about your diet: high quality fats such as Avocados make a huge difference for a growing breastfed baby. Avoid anything " low fat" or " skim"
