Benefits of breastfeeding
- Breastfeeding improves the physical growth of the infant and it is of great importance for the development of the brain and retina, especially in premature infants and those at risk of developmental delays.
- Breastfed children have better immunity and have reduced risk of diseases of the respiratory and digestive systems, as well as socially significant diseases such as obesity and diabetes.
- Breastfeeding has advantages for the mother, too as it reduces the risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and osteoporosis in later life.
- Breastfeeding is the most natural and affectionate way to give a successful start to your baby.
