Breastmilk gives babies all the nutrients they need for the first six months of life and helps protect them from infection and diseases. It also reduces mothers’ chances of getting certain diseases later in life.
- Breastfeeding also allows you and your baby to get closer – physically and emotionally. So while your child is feeding, the bond between you can grow stronger.
- Bottle feeding does not give your baby the same ingredients as breastmilk, which is designed to be easy for your baby to absorb and is perfect to help him grow and develop. Also, bottle feeding doesn’t provide protection against infection and diseases.
Breastfeeding helps protect your baby against:
- ear infections
- gastro-intestinal infections
- chest infections
- urine infections
- childhood diabetes
Breastfeeding helps protect mothers against:
- ovarian cancer
- breast cancer
- weak bones later in life.
Women who breastfeed return to their pre-pregnancy figure faster.
