Hi Fellow mommies, Breast feeding is an important phase in the motherhood where the infant gets all the essentials he/she requires. Breastfeeding also helps a mother bond with her new born baby. World Breastfeeding Week for 2015 is celebrated from 1[SUP]st[/SUP] of August to 7[SUP]th[/SUP] of August. The theme of 2015 would be “Breastfeeding and Work – Let’s Make it Work!” Physical contact is important to newborns and can help them feel more secure, warm and at comfort which is provided during breast feeding. Breast milk has agents (called antibodies) in it to help protect infants from bacteria and viruses and to help them in fighting infection and disease. Breastfed babies are less subject to lower respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, ear infections and septicemia. The rates of constipation and diarrhea are lower in breast-fed children. Breast feeding not only helps the little one but also helps the women by lowering the chances of breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Nursing uses up extra calories, making it easier to lose the pounds gained during pregnancy. It also helps the uterus to get back to its original size more quickly and lessens any bleeding a woman may suffer post child birth. Hope the below Breast Feeding Guide helps too..
