Why Should You Breastfeed Your Baby?
Best for Baby
A mother's milk has just the right amount of fat, sugar, water,
and protein that is needed for a baby's growth and development.
Most babies find it easier to digest breast milk than they
do formula. Breast milk has agents (called antibodies) in
it to help protect infants from bacteria and viruses and to
help them fight off infection and disease. Human milk straight
from the breast is always sterile
Best for Mom
The U.S. Surgeon General Recommends Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding saves times and money. You do not have to purchase,
measure, and mix formula, and there are no bottles to warm
in the middle of the night. Breastfeeding also helps a mother
bond with her baby. Physical contact is important to newborns
and can help them feel more secure, warm and comforted. Nursing
uses up extra calories, making it easier to lose the pounds
gained from pregnancy. It also helps the uterus to get back
to its original size more quickly and lessens any bleeding
a woman may have after giving birth. Breastfeeding also may
lower the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
The U.S. Surgeon General recommends that babies be fed with
breast milk only no formula for the first 6 months
of life. It is better to breastfeed for 6 months and best to
breastfeed for 12 months, or for as long as you and your baby
wish. Solid foods can be introduced when the baby is 6 months
old, while you continue to breastfeed.
