5 Reasons Why Breastfeeding is the Best!

  1. Best Milk for Your Baby
    • Your breastmilk has all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional elements that your baby needs. There is no formula that comes close to what your breastmilk can offer!
  2. Breastmilk Provides Immunity for your Baby
    • Human milk contains an ingredient called pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor(PSTI). This ingredient can repairs and protects your infant’s’ intestine. It’s present seven times higher colostrum, which helps provide extra protection to your sweet baby. Colostrum also contains the best concentrated immunological properties to help protect them from all the germs they are suddenly exposed to.
  3. Breastfeeding Helps Develop Your Infant’s Jaw
    • As your baby breastfeeds, the muscles in their jaws are massaged and exercised in a way that causes the bones in their face and jaw to develop more fully.
  4. Breastfeeding Helps with Clearing Meconium
    • Another reason colostrum is the superpower of breastmilk! Colostrum is a laxative that will help get your baby’s intestine moving and helps clean out all that nasty, tar-like stool that we call meconium. Meconium is stool that is build up in your baby’s system before birth.
  5. Breastfeeding Benefits the Mother as Well
