To mark the World Health Organization Breastfeeding Week here are Top 5 Benefits of Breastfeeding for both Mum and Baby.
Breast milk is the ideal food for newborns and infants, providing all the nutrients required for healthy development, including antibodies that shield infants from common childhood illnesses.
Skin-to-skin contact facilitates mother – baby bonding while stimulating the production of nutrient rich colostrum.
Breastfeeding limits the risk of breast and ovarian cancer, type II diabetes, and postpartum depression.
Breast Feeding helps with a natural birth control known as the Lactation Amenorrhea Method, which gives significant protection in the first six months after birth and can help space pregnancies.
Breast feeding alone burns an extra 300-500 calories a day, which means it can help you lose weight faster after having a baby.
Breast feeding can sometimes cause sore nipples but the benefits of it outweigh the cons. If your nipples are sore from breastfeeding, grab some nipple cream from our online store. We also have some breast pads that will help prevent breast milk stains on your clothes.
Happy Breastfeeding Week from all of us at Kasha.
