I was treadign this article: Growing Brains: Development from birth to age 3 sets stage for all of life

and it made me wonder if breast milk has properties in it that teach the body how to function properly? Everything a baby does and experiences helps baby learn and grow - so would what goes inside the baby not do the same thing?
