The Importance Of Breastfeeding
The decision to breastfeed your baby is always a personal choice. These days, baby formula has all of the nutrients that a little one needs to grow and develop. However, there are certain benefits that breast milk offers that formula cannot replicate.
Boosted immune system for baby: Breast milk contains healthy antibodies from the mother that pass along to the baby, helping to give their immune system some much-needed support. This helps to lower the risk of respiratory infections, ear infections, meningitis, and other conditions. Because breast milk is a unique diet designed for your baby, it is easier for them to digest which results in less cases of diarrhea and constipation.
Long term health benefits: While breastfeeding can help initially keep your baby healthier, it also has long term benefits. Studies show that breastfed babies have nearly half the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) than babies who are fed formula. Additionally, babies who are breastfed show fewer instances of childhood obesity, diabetes, allergies, and asthma.
Benefits for mom: Babies are not the only ones who benefit from breastfeeding. While pregnant, our bodies gain healthy weight to protect us and our baby. After our little one is born, our bodies are designed to release that weight through breastfeeding, which can burn up 300-500 calories per day. Breastfeeding also releases oxytocin, a hormone that helps the uterus return to pre-pregnancy size and limit postpartum bleeding. Mothers who breastfeed are also less likely to experience postpartum depression and report stronger connections with their infants. Additionally, breastfeeding is a better choice financially. Eliminating the need to purchase formula, as well as fewer trips to the doctor’s office for colds and infections can save a lot of money throughout your baby’s infancy.
