Swirled, Not Shaken

As a breastfeeding mom, I'm more than certain you've heard the words "don't shake breastmilk!" at some point in your nursing journey. The logic behind this is that, when shaken, the proteins in the milk can be damaged and denatured. But is this fact or just a myth that has been perpetuated by time and word of mouth?

One anthropologist decided to delve deeper into this issue and has come up with some fascinating information. Because she clearly does a better job than I ever could, I'll let her tell it. The results might surprise you. After reading her results, does it change your opinion on shaking or swirling milk?

Does Shaking Really Matter?
