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. In premature babies, the benefits are even greater. The skin-to-skin contact during breastfeeding is calming to the baby, making them feel more content and safe. Breastfeeding creates a unique bond, allowing moms to read their child’s cues and respond to their needs quickly. Breastfeeding benefits moms by being convenient, economical and helps the uterus return to normal size after pregnancy.
Nursing can be a significant financial savings. Infant formula can cost an average of $1,500/year depending on the brand of formula and other items needed to bottlefeed.
Breastfeeding support and information acquired while pregnant will greatly improve nursing success. Breastfeeding is not always instinctual and many women encounter difficulties at the beginning. 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, take classes, ask family and friends for help or talk to your doctor.
