Here are the Top 10 Benefits of Breastfeeding

 The Immune System of Babes.

The CDC states that colostrum, the thick, yellow first breastmilk that feeds your baby before your human milk arrives, reduces baby's chance of contracting common viral infections such as a cold, or ear infection. Your breast milk can also be used to pass your antibodies on to your baby.

2. Reduce your pregnancy weight

Breastfeeding requires an average of 500 calories per day in order to provide for baby's nutritional needs. This is a lot of calories in the first year! Although lactating mothers report that they lose weight faster while nursing, this is not always true.

3. Bond with your baby

Although bonding over a bottle is a good idea, it can be difficult for partners. However, nursing provides a unique opportunity to have intimate relationships. This is due in part to an increase in oxytocin (the love hormone). Research also shows that breastfeeding mothers are less likely to develop postpartum depression. Skin-to-skin contact can also be a great way to bond.

4. Reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

The post-neonatal mortality rate in the United States is 21 percent lower for breastfed infants.

5. Combat Certain Cancers and Diseases

Breastfeeding lowers your chances of developing breast cancer or ovarian cancers. Breastfeeding mothers have a lower risk of developing osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure later in life.

6. You can save time and money.

Infant formula is $150 per month. Start a savings plan or buy yourself a gift! You will be amazed at how much money you can save by breastfeeding your baby. You don't have to clean bottles when you can play with your baby or take a nap.

7. Keep feedings simple.

You can feed your baby at any time and any place. This perk does not apply to breast pumps, but it is still worth having less dish duty.

8. Give your little one a smart start.

Research suggests that breastfed babies have higher intelligences than those who are not.

9. Ensure You're Offering Custom Nutrition.

Breast milk is the best nutrition source. Your infant's nutritional needs will change as your baby grows. Breast milk will adapt to your infant's changing needs. This is also true for babies who are sick. Mama's milk comes to your rescue!

10. Give priority to your baby's future health.

Research in health care shows that breastfeeding and human milk have many benefits. Recent research suggests that breastfed babies have a lower risk of developing obesity and lower levels cholesterol than those who are not breastfed.
