Determination of body fat percentage in pregnant women is challenging because of their abdomen tension, which makes measurements of abdomen skinfold impossible, and due to increased water amount in their tissues. Although different equations for body composition exist, with some of them specifically adapted for use in pregnant women, they may give significantly different results. The aim of the study which was part of the research The role of human milk in development of breast fed child's intestinal microbiota was therefore to compare various existing methods and evaluate their results.

In October 2011 the symposium My-milk was organized by the researchers involved in the study The role of human milk in development of breast fed child's intestinal microbiota. The latest discoveries in the field of early nutrition, the microbiota of the mammary gland and effects of fetal nutrition on the development of offspring obesity were presented by foreign researchers on the project prof. Koletzko, prof. Rodriguez and dr. Ding. Slovenian researchers presented the methodological approaches to the research. The symposium was attended by 120 physicians and nutritionists.

The fatty acid composition of milk lipids of mothers with hypogalactia and of mothers with adequate milk supply was determined. The main lipid fractions in plasma of healthy breastfed infants with failure to thrive were also compared to those of age-matched healthy controls. The results were surprising and unexpected. Higher w-6 LCP content was found in milk lipids of mothers with hypogalactia compared to the control group. Infants with failure to thrive had better LCP status of phospholipids and triglicerides in plasma than infants with normal weight gain.
