Benefits of Breastfeeding

While we recognize that some women cannot or may choose not to breastfeed, there are many benefits to breastfeeding, including:

  • Breast milk increases immunities for your baby.
  • Breastfeeding meets the emotional needs of babies and can help them feel more secure.
  • Breast-fed babies have fewer allergies, ear infections, digestive and respiratory illnesses and fewer bouts with colic.
  • Breast milk is perfect nutrition for babies, as your milk changes as your baby grows.

Rex lactation services offers assistance to new mothers and babies during their hospital stay. A lactation consultant can assist you with problems identified by your physician or nurse. If you would like to speak with a consultant, just let your nurse know.
