Benefits of breastfeeding
Optimal nutrition: During their first year, babies grow faster than at any other time during their lives. Your breast milk is designed to support this rapid growth and is constantly changing to meet your baby’s nutritional needs.
Immunity: When your baby enters the world, their immune systems are not fully developed and ready to protect their little bodies. Breast milk contains many immune factors that help protect your baby against infection while their immune systems mature.
Stimulating the senses: The close contact that your baby experiences from breastfeeding, stimulates your baby's senses of touch, sight, smell, hearing and taste.
