THE BEAUTY OF BREASTFEEDING

THE BEAUTY OF BREASTFEEDING

Breastfeeding not only creates a bond between mother and child, but it provides an abundance of nutrients such as calcium, iron, zinc, DHA and taurine; hormones and maternal growth factors to help with the maturing of the baby’s gastrointestinal tract and provides specific and non-specific immune factors to help protect the baby from infection!

Breastfeeding also benefits the mother in many ways - 

  • It is a form of contraception as menses cease during lactation 
  • Breastfeeding mothers tend to lose weight more easily 
  • The suckling of the baby can prompt the uterus to contract, reducing blood flow after birth 
  • Feel-good hormones are produced during breastfeeding
