Difference Between Milk and Colostrums

Milk vs Colostrums

Milk and colostrums are the same but even then they cannot be said to be totally the same. Both milk and Colostrums are essential for a new born.

While Colostrums gives the initial immune power, fats and carbohydrates, milk adds these to the child’s body as it grows.

Colostrums are the first milk that the body produces during pregnancy. Milk is formed only secondary to colostrums.

Colostrums are very creamy and yellow in colour. It is the milk that is produced in the breasts before the mature milk is produced. Colostrums are known to be high in proteins and carbohydrates. Very low in fats, this first milk delivers the new born the needed antibodies for its immune system.

Colostrums are also known to have a laxative effect which helps the baby to pass the first few tarry and black stools known as meconium soon after the birth (usually within 24 to 48 hours).

Colostrums are also known to stimulate the production of mature milk in the breasts. Colostrums help in blocking the permeable intestines of new born and thus preventing harmful substances from entering.
When compared to Milk, Colostrums contain three times more Vitamin D and ten times more vitamin A.
Unlike colostrums, milk is somewhat white in colour. Milk is considered to be one of the best sources of nutrition and protects the baby from diseases and infections. Like colostrums, milk is also easily digested.

Milk contains different types of Proteins that help in building immunity. Lactoferrin, Secretory IgA, Lysozyme and Bifidus factor are some of the proteins that the milk contains.
Milk is also rich in Vitamins and carbohydrates, enzymes, antibodies and hormones.
