This is an area where there is much less information currently available than there is for fetal programming, and the book raises many new questions and highlights numerous areas where further research is needed. The book chapters are arranged in three core sections: Chapters 1-4 lay down some of the basic biology of early life development- Chapters 5-9 examine how breast-milk and breast-feeding might programme these processes by acting as modulators of development- Chapters 10-17 examine the epidemiological evidence that such effects do indeed exist.

In addition the book includes unique chapters on the Evolution of human lactation and complementary feeding, The Macy-Gyorgy Prize Lecture My Milky Way, updates on HIV and Breast-Feeding and on Early breastfeeding cessation and infant mortality in low-income countries, and measuring trace immune factors in human milk, all important topics that have such a critical impact on child health and survival in many countries.
