Breastfeeding your newborn has many advantages. Perhaps most important, breast milk is the perfect food for a baby’s digestive system. It has the nutrients that a newborn needs, and all of its components — lactose, protein (whey and casein), and fat — are easily digested. Commercial formulas try to imitate breast milk, and come close, but cannot match its exact composition. Also, breast milk has antibodies that help protect babies from many infectious illnesses, including diarrhea and respiratory infections. Studies suggest that breastfed babies are less likely to develop medical problems such as diabetes, high cholesterol, asthma, and allergies. Breastfeeding also may decrease the chances that a child will become overweight or obese. Come learn more about the benefits of breastfeeding with us on 3/19/2022 at 10:00 am on Zoom!
