LactIns-and-outs: Pioneering methods to unravel lactation insufficiency

Breastfeeding offers unique advantages for mothers and infants, but is also associated with many challenges. Accurate quantification of breast milk intake by the infant is often desired, but objective methods are unavailable. In this project, we develop new methods to better quantify and understand milk flow and composition from mother to infant.
