Breastfeeding: A Healthier Way To Feed Your Baby
Nowadays where people are very liberated there are times that women mishandle themselves. Thus, many end up into early pregnancies wherein some of them became single mom. Those women are the one who knows little in life and they are typically not ready to have a baby yet. So, many of them didn’t know what to do and what to expect after they have given birth to their baby.
On the other hand, the ignorance on baby handling is also true for those first time mom, whether they have a husband or not. Actually, almost all parents, but especially the mom didn’t have an idea on how to deal with their baby. And one of the things that they are having difficulty deciding is to breastfeed their baby or not.
Working moms are the one who are typically more frustrated with that situation. They are afraid breastfeeding may mean choosing between their job or at the very least, taking a leave of absence. Thus, many of them rely on the formulated milk for babies. Indeed the formulated milk options contain vitamins and minerals that the baby needs. However, breastfeeding is still the best option.
Wondering why? Well, mommy, breastfeeding is very good for you and most especially for your baby. When you breast feed your baby, you are protecting your baby against infections and other diseases like diarrhea, haemophillus influenza, necrotizing enternal colitis, otitis media, herpes simples, respiratory syncytical virus (RSV) and more.
In addition to that, you are also protecting your baby against illnesses such as wheezing, SIDS, morbidity and other general illnesses. Aside from that, you are also protecting your baby from allergies and eczema. All of those things are because of that fact that breast milk contains antibodies that makes the baby stronger and healthier
If you are thinking that those are just the advantages of breastfeeding, then you are wrong! Do you know that there are studies that link breastfeeding to the baby’s brain development? Breast milk contains polyunsaturated fatty acids which are indeed very essential in developing and enhancing the baby’s mind. For that reason, babies that are breastfed are more likely to have higher IQ. There are also studies that show that breastfed babies have significant advantages in terms of psychomotor and social capabilities.
The good news is the advantages of breastfeeding don’t stop there. Why? Because it has been found out that there are long term effects of breastfeeding to infants. Babies who were breastfed have an improved dental health. The risk for diabetes mellitus, childhood cancer, Chron’s disease, Hodgkin’s disease and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) are also reduced into a significant level.
Thus, forget about having second thoughts when it comes to breastfeeding your baby because aside from the many benefits of breastfeeding, this process is also cheap. You don’t need to buy expensive milk and milk bottle. You don’t have anything to sterilize and you don’t need to prepare anything since it is all there and it is free and healthy too.
