Breastfeeding provides a variety of benefits for both baby and mom. Not only does it provide all the nutrition your baby needs, but it also strengthens the bond between mom and baby

Here are some of the other reasons why breastfeeding is a great choice:

  • Helps mom get back to pre-pregnancy weight

  • Gives your baby all the antibodies they need to fight infections

  • Reduce the chance of obesity for baby

  • Reduces stress between both mom and baby

  • Baby is less likely to develop asthma and allergies
