The benefits of breast milk are limitless for both mother and baby. As an amazing gift from Mother Nature, breast milk naturally meets your baby’s dietary requirements for rapid growth and development.
Providing milk when your baby needs it and at exactly the right temperature. Breast milk contains properties which strengthen a young infant’s developing immune system. Not to mention, the fact that it’s an excellent source of nourishment. Breastfeeding in itself promotes feelings of intimacy and familiarity; giving you and your baby invaluable time to bond.
However, infant formula has been made to provide the same nutritional value that breast milk offers. Fortunately, mothers are able to replicate the psychological benefits which breast fed babies receive by holding your baby close while bottle feeding and alternating sides between feeds.
