The human milk microbiota is an important source of commensal microorganisms for the infant gut. Although both maternal and infant microbiomes are shaped by a multitude of factors, including delivery mode, geographic location and the method of breastfeeding, the extent to which bacterial taxa in a mother’s breast milk correlates with an infant’s fecal microbiota across different geographic locations is unclear.…

During and after birth, the body of a healthy infant is rapidly colonized by microorganisms and several factors can shape microbial colonization. The most studied ones include delivery method, antibiotics, and diet. Establishment of an adult-like microbiome is estimated to occur within the first 3 years of life, and the infant gut microbiome may play an important role in the…
