I've always been fascinated with Psychology, Skepticism and Critical Thinking. I mainly write about these subjects but I sometimes delve into other topics in science, education and parenting.

    Breast milk contains antibodies and other immune system components for as long as it is produced. The antibodies in toddler milk are more concentrated than in baby milk to compensate for decreased volume.

      I’m not sure that’s entirely accurate. According to a 2006 literature review, it appears that antibody volume decreases beginning at 6-12 months. (Jackson, K. M., & Nazar, A. M. (2006).
