Breastfeeding is good for both baby and mother.
The Benefits of Breastfeeding for the Baby: Breast milk provides perfect natural nutrition including vitamins, proteins and energy for baby’s needs to grow. Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria and have fewer infections. Breastfeeding lowers your baby's risk of having asthma or allergies. The physical closeness, skin-to-skin touching, and eye contact all help the baby bond with mother and feel secure. Breastfeeding has been linked to higher IQ scores in later childhood in some studies.
Breastfeeding Benefits for the Mother:
Breastfeeding burns extra calories helping lose pregnancy weight faster. It releases the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to its none pregnancy size and may reduce uterine bleeding after birth.
