what is lactating?

I gues you love pictures of lactating moms and the milk dripping from their big dark nipples. But I always wondered the process of lactation and the mechanisms of that natural wonder. Here we go:

The lactation process begins in a mother when the hormone oxytocin is produced in response to the birth of a new baby. Both uterine contraction and lactation process more or less begin simultaneously. The milk produced is primarily controlled by the hormone prolactin, which relies upon the length of time the infant nurses at the breast.
Significantly, lactation provides the much needed nutrition for the new born baby. The first milk a breast fed baby receives is called colostrum which contains high amounts of white blood cells and antibodies than mature milk. This colostrum is rich in immunoglobulin A. This helps to coat the lining of the baby`s immature intestines. Germs trying to enter the baby`s system are also prevented. Food allergies are also kept away. After the initial two weeks, colostrum gives way to mature breast milk.

Now enough science, time to watch pictures of lactating tits:
