The human milk of part its nutritional and biologic properties stays the standard gold for the nutrition of the newborn child and the infant. The most recent studies confirm that the volume and the nutritional quality of the milk depend on numerous environmental, nutritional, genetic and epigenetic factors. Some of them could be modifiable or adjustable and during the critical period of 1000 days could impact the quality of the milk and thus the health of the infant and even the future adult but also the health of the mother. One day, we could respond to specific needs using human milk as a “lactothérapy”.
