Breastfeeding Is Best For Baby

    Breastfeeding has always been recommended as the best nutrition for babies. It has everything that a baby needs and all mothers have the ability to produce it. But as good its benefits are, it isn't as easy to do. Before a baby is born, nature ensures that your body will be prepared to breast feed your baby. Breastfeeding will give your baby the best source of nutrients, and result in a good healthy start for your baby. Breastfeeding and nursing your baby is an acquired skill. For both mom and baby, this will require time and patience on both parts. Breastfeeding comes more natural for some mothers and babies, but don't feel pressure to perform. Choosing how to feed a baby is one of the most important decisions new parents make. Today more and more parents are choosing to breastfeed and are continuing to breastfeed longer when they have the right tips and support. The best way to start breastfeeding your baby is to create an environment that is as calm as possible, as it will help provide both you and baby a soothing atmosphere to breastfeed. Keeping a drink nearby is a helpful tip to breastfeeding, as it will keep up your fluid intake.

Breast milk:

  • Breast milk is living substance that contains an ideal balance of nutrients that infants can easily digest.
  • It also contains important immune factors that are designed to combat allergens and illnesses in baby’s environment.
  • Breast milk changes over the course of a single day, and even throughout a feeding, to meet the changing needs of the growing baby.
  • Colostrum – the “first milk” – coats and strengthens intestinal linings to prevent harmful bacteria from invading infants’ systems.
