Breastfeeding provides health benefits to both babies and their mothers. Breast milk is a food, designed just for your baby. Yet breastfeeding is more than a food. The process of holding a baby skin to skin during feedings is known to calm a newborn. This calmness has a soothing effect on baby, helping a baby’s brain to finish developing and creating a sense of security.
After all, babies were born to be breastfed. Recent research continues to highlight the numerous ways in which human milk is the ideal food for our babies. Unlike pasteurized, processed cow’s milk formula, human milk is a living substance, full of protective factors and ingredients that fight infections and help a baby’s body and brain grow and develop. Human milk contains over a hundred ingredients not found in any commercial formula.
When babies are not fed human milk, their risks of developing certain illnesses increase.
Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the U.S. Surgeon General recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, with breastfeeding to continue for at least twelve months
