Is Breastfeeding Better?
This is a question we hear often. “What’s better: breastfeeding or bottle-feeding?” Thankfully, with the advancements made in infant nutrition, a baby fed on formula will receive all the nutrients they need to grow and develop. However, there are some proven benefits that breast milk offers that even the most expensive baby formula could not replicate. Let’s take a look at some of those benefits for both babies and mothers.
Breastfed babies have a better immune system, and therefore have lower rates of pneumonia, colds, and other viruses. This is because healthy disease-fighting antibodies transfer from mother to baby through breast milk, which helps to make the little ones more adept at fighting off illness.
The immunity benefits of breast milk follow your child for years to come. In fact, breastfed babies are at less of a risk of developing chronic conditions like Crohn’s disease, asthma, diabetes, and allergies later in life.
Breastfeeding can help control weight for both moms and infants. For mothers, breastfeeding can burn several hundred calories per day. And infants have been shown to be more likely to gain the correct amount of weight when breastfed, rather than gaining too much or too little.
Breastfeeding releases a hormone called oxytocin in the mother. This hormone helps to create a strong bond with your baby -- but does more than just that. It also triggers your uterus to contract more quickly back to its pre-pregnancy size which can reduce the amount of postpartum bleeding.
