Breastfeeding Benefits For Babies

Balanced Nutrition

Breast Milk is still the best source of nutrition from birth to six months of a baby's life. It helps prevent specific allergies and is easy for them to digest.

Boosts Immune System

Colostrum (or "liquid gold" found in breast milk) contains antibodies and immune factors that contribute extra protection against infections. As a result, your little one can enjoy immediate and lifelong immunity to certain illnesses and diseases.

Enhances Bonding Between Mother And Child

You might now know it, but as young as they are, they'll always feel safe in your arms. This affection and protection help boost their emotional stability and mental development.

Safe and Practical

There's no need to sterilise breast milk as it is ready to drink once expressed. A good breastmilk supply also saves you money since formula milk is expensive.

Reduces The Risk of SIDS

Breastfeeding or drinking breast milk reduces the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Breastmilk consumption for even two months can cut the risk in half.

Health organisations advise babies to drink breast milk for at least 12 months.

Brain Development

DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, is a polyunsaturated fatty acid in breast milk. This substance helps in your little one's brain development.

Prevents Middle Ear Infections

Breastfeeding reduces your bub's risk of getting middle ear infections.

Reduces The Risk of Diabetes

Since breast milk has no artificial sugar, it reduces the risk of diabetes, as some baby food in the market contains some.
