What are the benefits of breastfeeding?
Breast milk contains the perfect mix of components for your baby's nutritional and immunity needs. The yellow fluid that is produced by your breasts in the first few days after birth, called colostrum, helps to protect your baby from middle-ear, gastrointestinal, urinary and respiratory infections. Breastfeeding enhances the bond with your baby and can also prevent pneumonia, diarrheal diseases, obesity, diabetes and allergies.
