Once you've given birth, breast feeding is the single most important thing you can do
to protect your baby and help to promote good health. Best of all, breast feeding is free.
Along with saving you money on HMR (Human Milk Replacement), breast
feeding can also help you to keep your medical bills down. Babies that are fed with
formula get sicker more often and more seriously than babies that are breast fed.
They also have more ear infections, respiratory infections, and other problems.
This can be even more true if your family has had a history of allergies.
When a baby is breast fed, the antibodies pass on from the mother to the
baby, helping to protect against illness and allergies. As the baby's system
matures, his body will begin to make it's own antibodies, and he'll be more
equipped to handle sensitivities of food.
Sucking on the breast will also help with the development or jaw alignment
and the development of the cheekbone. For this very reason, there is less
of the need for costly orthodontic work when the child gets older.
Unlike formula, breast milk is always ready, always available, convenient, and
always the right temperature for feeding. Plus, it contains all of the vitamins
and minerals your growing baby needs, saving you a lot of money.
Breast feeding also offers many benefits for the mom as well. The baby sucking
at the breast will cause contractions right after birth, leading to less bleeding for
the mom, and helping her uterus to it's shape before pregnancy much faster.
