Benefits Of Breast Feeding




Once you've given birth, breast feeding is the single



most important thing you can do to protect your baby



and help to promote good health. Best of all, breast



feeding is free.





Along with saving you money on HMR (Human Milk



Replacement), breast feeding can also help you to



keep your medical bills down. Babies that are fed



with formula get sicker more often and more seriously



than babies that are breast fed They also have more



ear infections, respiratory infections, and other



problems.





This can be even more true if your family has had a



history of allergies. When a baby is breast fed, the



antibodies pass on from the mother to the baby,



helping to protect against illness and allergies. As



the baby's system matures, his body will begin to



make it's own antibodies, and he'll be more equipped



to handle sensitivities of food.





Sucking on the breast will also help with the



development or jaw alignment and the development of



the cheekbone. For this very reason, there is less



of the need for costly orthodontic work when the



child gets older.





Unlike formula, breast milk is always ready, always



available, convenient, and always the right temperature



for feeding. Plus, it contains all of the vitamins



and minerals your growing baby needs, saving you a



lot of money.





Breast feeding also offers many benefits for the mom



as well. The baby sucking at the breast will cause



contractions right after birth, leading to less



bleeding for the mom, and helping her uterus to it's



shape before pregnancy much faster.





Breast feeding will also burn calories, so a mom can



lose weight much faster than if she fed her baby with



a bottle. Breast feeding will also create a special



bond with the mother and the baby - which is one



thing formula simpy cannot do.
