This study investigated the effects of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplementation on the fatty acid composition of breast milk and plasma concentrations in lactating women and their infants. Eighty-nine lactating women 4–6 weeks post-partum received placebo, 200mg or 400mg DHA for 6weeks with usual diets. DHA supplementation impacts infant fatty acids important for brain development and breast milk fatty acid composition.
