It is important to establish an early connection with your baby, as early as day one. Love and care are vital in welcoming your baby into the world, and so is breastfeeding.
The benefits of breastfeeding extend well beyond basic nutrition. Breast milk is best for your baby, it contains all the vitamins and nutrients your baby needs in the first six months of life, as well as, disease-fighting elements that protect your baby. Your breast milk is specifically tailored to fulfill your baby’s needs.
Breastfeeding guards babies from various illnesses, such as, stomach viruses, ear infections, lower respiratory illnesses and meningitis. These illnesses occur less often in breastfed babies than non-breastfed babies.
