Breastfeeding is the healthiest choice for babies and moms. Antibodies in breast milk promote wellness, strengthen immunity, decrease allergies and protect infants from ear and respiratory infections and illnesses. Breast milk is easy to digest, lowers risks of obesity and diabetes and is perfectly matched for baby's nutritional needs for healthy growth and brain development.
Many women encounter difficulties in the beginning, but remembering the benefits will help. Skin-to-skin contact during breastfeeding is calming to the baby, making them feel more content and safe. Breastfeeding benefits moms by being convenient, economical and helps the uterus return to normal size after pregnancy. Nursing can also be a significant financial savings.
We want to make breastfeeding better! Breastfeeding is not instinctual and there is not one way to be successful. Breast pain and fear of low milk supply are common, but a strong support system, proper nutrition and up-to-date information can help! If you make the choice to breastfeed, become well informed and ask for help from doctors, consultants and friends!
