Renee Mackey with La Leche League talks about the many breastfeeding benefits for baby. She describes breastfeeding as nature's perfect food. Babies are born with no beneficial flora and with very little immunity. Breast milk has an ideal balance of fats, proteins and sugars which make it easier for babies to digest.
Decisions about you and your baby's health are too important to ignore. As a mother, protect and prepare your child as only you can!
The long term benefits of breastfeeding:
- Less likely to have allergies
- Ear infections
- Respiratory infections
- Gastrointestinal infections
- Dental issues
- Decrease risk of obesity
- Helps brain development
- Have a higher IQ
- Lower risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
"Babies who are breastfeed are healthy, happy, smart and strong."
