From how far away can a baby smell his mother's breastmilk?

Just a random question that's been on my mind for a while

  • I'm guessing about 10 feet.... until like 4 months though they can smell ANY BREASTMILK not just that of their mothers anyones... after 4 months they can differentiate "their" moms bm from that of another

  • probably as far as anyone can smell it..if your in a public place and you can smell it from across the room the baby can probably smell it from across the room to..but im not sure so dont quote me on it

  • if you're in the next room they can smell you. don't think they can smell it farther than that though
