The Importance Of Breastfeeding. by Nk (f): 4:49pm on July 4

Some important facts about breastfeeding
Babies who are breastfed are generally healthier and achieve optimal growth and development compared to those who are fed formula milk.
If the vast majority of babies were exclusively fed breastmilk in their first six months of life – meaning only breastmilk and no other liquids or solids, not even water – it is estimated that it could save around 800,000 under-5 lives every year. If children continue to be breastfed up to two years and beyond, their health and development would be improved.
Infants who are not breastfed are at an increased risk of illness or dying from illness. Breastfed babies can receive protection from illnesses through the mother’s milk. Breastfeeding is the natural and recommended way of feeding all infants, even when artificial feeding is affordable, clean water is available, and good hygienic conditions exist.
