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.
