Nurtured at your breast, your baby has warm food and your loving embrace - everything he needs to grow big and strong!
Both babies and mothers get so much from breastfeeding. Your precious little one will have normal digestive health protecting him against illness and allergies and building a good immune system. The different flavors in breastmilk will make him less likely to be a picky eater as he's older. You will enjoy postpartum weight loss, sleep more, and have less stress mothering your baby. Years after nursing your benefits continue as you have strong bones and reduce your risk of breast, uterine, ovarian and endometrial cancers.
Your breastmilk was created specifically for your baby at this exact moment of his life - there's no real substitute for it's 250+ components. But breastfeeding is more than just food and health for your baby and you; it's a special way of bonding with this new little person.
The transition to motherhood is amazing.
