Discover the Benefits of Breastfeeding

Along with the satisfaction of doing what is best for your baby, the benefits of breastfeeding for your children should convince you that it is at least worth a good effort to try it!

According to the latest research, here are some of the many benefits of breastfeeding for your baby:

* Breastfed babies are not so sick! Research shows that breastfed infants have fewer and shorter episodes of illness.

* Human milk is best for human babies! Your breastmilk is the most natural food and most nutritious way to encourage your baby’s optimal child development.

* You get a smarter kid! The nutrition provided by breastmilk benefits your baby’s IQ. Breastfed babies have tested to have higher IQ scores throughout childhood and even into adulthood!

* Secure and happy baby. The skin-on-skin contact encouraged by breastfeeding offers babies greater sense of security and encourages bonding with their mother.

* Breastfeeding appears to reduce the risk of obesity--even into adulthood.

* Help from allergies. Breastfeeding helps protect against the development of allergies.

* Protection against disease. Breastfeeding helps the baby’s immune system mature, protecting the baby in the meantime from viral, bacteria, and parasitic infections.

* Secure and happy baby. The skin-on-skin contact encouraged by breastfeeding offers babies greater sense of security and encourages bonding with their mother.

In addition, many of these benefits of breastfeeding appear to last for years even after the baby has been weaned.
