Why Breastfeed?

A mother’s milk is the best food for babies. It has a perfect mix of protein, fat, water, vitamins, and is easy to digest. Antibodies, or special proteins, in breast milk boost your baby’s immune system, helping them fight off infections. Breastfeeding lowers your baby’s risk of asthma, allergies, and obesity while moms save money, lose their pregnancy weight faster, and have a reduced risk of breast cancer.
