Good nutrition is important throughout our lives. It is especially important during infancy and childhood because of its effect on growth and development.
Breast milk protects your baby from illness and infection and promotes brain development.
One of the amazing things about breast milk is that it is specially formulated for a baby. Breast milk continually changes so that your baby gets what he or she needs at any age.
Breastfeeding improves your baby's oral and facial development. It lowers your risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and osteoporosis later in life. By breastfeeding, you are doing something that only you can do for your baby.
