Mom Shares Petri Dish Pics With Breast Milk To Prove That ‘Boobs Are Magical’

Over the past couple of years, breastfeeding has gained a lot of media attention. Most of the attention has been around mothers talking about breastfeeding in public.

Strangers seem to have a problem with mothers starting to take control of their bodies.

As a result, there has been some unfortunate negative news regarding breastfeeding. This isn’t good since breastfeeding is an amazing and one of the most natural things a woman can do.

Not every mother is able to nurse their baby, but for those who are able to, there isn’t a stronger way to bond with your baby.

And breastfeeding gets even more amazing. Breast milk has magical properties. For instance, this mother’s breast milk changed when her baby was sick!

Jessica, a biology student with a 17-month-old son, wrote:

My science project investigation results: 2 plates of Micrococcus luteus, 4 assay disks on each, the left is disks soaked in breast milk, the right is disks soaked in formula.

As you can see the clear circles around the disks is where the breast milk has fought off the bacteria and nearly cleared the plate, the formula on the other hand has had no effect and the bacteria has completely over run the plate, even moving the disks. 


The healing properties of breast milk are probably the most incredible thing about it. According to the Cleveland Clinic, breast milk improves your baby’s immune system.

Take a look at Jessica Wilson post about why she as a mom thinks “boobs are magical”.

Jessica’s post has inspired moms everywhere.

One woman stated OMG! This would be the ideal time for pregnant and postnatal women (and men too) to get health education.

Another woman said it was pretty phenomenal and that all of the hassles were worthwhile.

Many mothers don’t find breastfeeding in public to be a pleasant experience, so it is great that they get reminders that they are doing an amazing job.

Some people state that not all women have the ability to breastfeed, so we need to be sensitive to those women.

Some moms cannot breastfeed for a variety of mental, physical or emotional reasons and there’s nothing wrong with that.

Although breast milk is incredible, there are other alternatives available.


Even though breast milk has the ability to boost a baby’s immune system, it doesn’t mean that babies who aren’t breastfed won’t turn out perfectly healthy.

By kissing, cuddling and hugging their babies, mothers can improve their little one’s immune systems.

Jessica’s post reminds us how amazing breast milk is and she wants women to lose the shame of breastfeeding in public.
