My older kids were barely nurses, when we know better we do better right?

I gave my 2nd son pumped milk here and there he loved it but my oldest said it was nasty!

The more intelligent an "animal" the sweeter it's milk.  Human's are the sweetest.  It's the large amount of lactose in breast milk that makes it taste so sweet: breast milk contains roughly twice as much lactose as cow's milk does. But unlike the sugar in a Twinkie, the sugar in breast milk has a purpose: it helps the baby's immature digestive system maximize its uptake of calcium and other important nutrients.
