Importance of Breastfeeding
- Breastfeeding fulfils all your baby’s nutritional needs.
- It fosters a feeling of closeness & bonding between the mother and the baby!
- Mother’s milk contains vital natural ingredients that protect your baby from various diseases and strengthens the baby’s defence mechanism, against diseases.
That is why the mother’s milk is of vital importance, right after birth.
Although it is utmost important that the mother should also take great care of her own health and must maintain a rich nutritious diet. This will ensure an ample supply of good quality milk thereby securing ideal healthy parameters of the baby.
Breast milk is the best food for the newborns & infants and should be continued for as long as possible.
If mother’s milk is not available in sufficient amounts only then you can give a formula feed But after due consultation from some expert Child Specialist.
Although, a large majority of the medical companies are manufacturing the baby’s formula feeds; but not every company is fulfilling the due Standard Requirements, so you have to offer the formula feed of some authentic research-oriented medical company and that too after due consultation with an expert paediatrician.
