Breastfeeding Benefits
by Nikola Marshall

All of baby's nutritional needs will be met. There are one hundred ingredients in breast
milk not found in formula. Breast milk contains fatty acids, lactose, water and amino
acids that are essential. These, among other nutrients aid in digestion, brain
development and growth. It also promotes good jaw development. Breastfed babies
also have a lower amount of trips to the dentist when they are older.

Babies tend to have virtually no allergic reactions to breast milk.

What about the psychological benefits? Touch is so very important to any human,
especially a newborn. With breastfeeding, there is skin on skin contact, whereas a
bottle fed baby may not be touched by anything other than a hard plastic or glass
bottle. Time spent between a breast fed baby and its mother aids in bonding. Baby
gets an early sense of attachment, security and warmth.

These are but a few of the multitude of positive outcomes from breastfeeding. Many
studies have been done and the results are strongly in favor of breastfeeding over
bottle feeding. It is healthier for baby both physically and mentally.

There are so many decisions to be
made concerning your new baby.
Whether to breastfeed or use a bottle
is one of them. When making your
choice, consider the benefits of
breastfeeding.

Breastfed babies receive a large
amount of nutritional and health
benefits. They have lower rates of
hospitalizations, ear infections, rashes
and allergies. They also have better
vaccine protection, meaning a higher
response to immunizations. This is
due to the transfer of the mother's
antibodies through milk.
