Deciding to breastfeed can be a scary and awkward situation for new mothers, because most moms don’t have the correct information and knowledge about this form of feeding. Breastfeeding has many benefits to the mother and baby.The mother heals faster, mother and child bonds quicker, economical, quicker weight loss,convenient,and decreases some forms of cancers. For the baby, the mother breast produces Colostrum which is known as GOLD before the real milk is produced, it has nutrients and antibodies that’s good for the baby’s overall health.
Mothers from the beginning of time have always breastfed their babies, there were no artificial or substitute baby formulas to give their baby.The mother had no other choice but to do what was instinctively natural to her which was to breastfeed her baby fresh out of the womb.
There are skeptics who would love to believe that breastfeeding is unnatural and unnecessary for the mother and child. It use to be a thing for poor mothers , but now mothers from all socioeconomic backgrounds are partaking of this amazing and natural way of feeding their baby.
I believe more mothers would breastfeed if they would do some research and talk to their doctor about breastfeeding.
