You may have heard that breastfeeding has some great health benefits. I thought I would share some of the detailed benefits that breastfeeding has been known to provide for you and your baby.
Several studies have shown that breastfed babies have fewer cases of:
- Stomach viruses
- Respiratory illnesses
- Ear infections
- Child Obesity
If that’s not enough, long tem studies show that breastfed babies have a 20% lower risk of dying between 28days and 1 year! But that’s not all; Breastfed babies have reduced risk of developing certain childhood cancers. Additionally, babies that drink breast milk have fewer allergic reactions. This is a huge amount of benefits you can provide to your baby. And it’s all from your specially formulated milk. A mother’s milk produces an immune rich substance that cannot be reproduced in formulas. This specially formulated milk not only fights viruses, it provides a protective coating on your babies throat, nose, stomach and membranes.
