Breastfeeding and its Importance

Breast milk is uniquely suited to a baby’s nutritional needs and is enriched with immunological and anti-inflammatory properties that protect the baby against a host of illnesses and diseases.

Not just that, breastfeeding also creates a bond between the mother and the baby. When a mother holds her baby close during breastfeeding, the baby can feel, smell, and see his mother. This helps build a close, loving connection between the mother and the baby.

Let’s look at some ways in which breastfeeding is beneficial for baby, mother, and the environment:

  • It supplies all the necessary nutrients in the proper proportions to the baby.
  • It protects against allergies, sickness, and obesity.
  • It protects against diseases, like diabetes and cancer.
  • Breast Milk is always available and is fresh, clean, and safe.
  • It protects against infections, like ear infections.
  • It is easily digested – no constipation, diarrhea, or upset stomach.
  • Breastfeeding reduces the risk of ovarian cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis, etc.
  • Babies have healthier weights as they grow.
  • It has no waste and is good for the environment.
