Reasons to choose breastfeeding

  • Breast milk is easier to digest than formula and provides your baby with all the nutrients he/she needs for the first 6 months of life.
  • Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria.
  • Breastfeeding allows regular time to relax and emotionally bond with your baby through skin-to-skin, physical closeness, and eye contact.
  • Breastfeeding provides benefits to the mother by decreasing the mother’s risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and much more.
  • Breastfeeding saves time and money spent on preparing and buying formula.
