A baby elephant adds about two pounds of bodyweight each day after birth. An elephant mother’s milk changes four times during the weaning process to meet the baby’s needs.

Each bottle is different for each elephant, and keepers must feed the elephants eight times a day to keep them healthy. Elephant mommy no one else will ever know the strength poster. The best substitute for a mother elephant’s milk? Human baby formula, which is fortified with protein, fat and vitamins. During the painful teething process, an elephant mother’s milk adapts to soothe the baby: Mother elephants will change their diets to include plants with anti-inflammatory properties to help the baby cope with incoming teeth. At the sanctuary, keepers use their knowledge of local plants to administer natural medicines to mimic the same types of nutrition.
