Parents are finding out about the benefits of breast milk for optimum infant care. There are many benefits of breastfeeding your child. Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Houston, Texas has put together a list of some of the facts about breast milk and how it can assist your child’s development. Parents should know that breastmilk is the best food for a child.

Antibodies

A mother’s breast milk is made for her child’s specific needs. By breastfeeding, your child is getting antibodies which can help him or her to fight off infections and sickness. These antibodies cannot be obtained from feeding formula. Ideally, a child will receive breast milk for the first six months of life which coats, protects, and allows the child’s systems to develop. However, if a mother is unable to breastfeed, infant feeding formulas have been fine tuned over the years to provide adequate nutrition for a child as well.

Nutrients

Breast milk gives your child the specific nutrients and vitamins which he or she needs. This means that breastmilk is specific to your child’s needs. Your breast milk gives the child a rich and completely nutritious meal every time he or she feeds.

Great for your baby and you

Breast milk is not only great for your child’s development but breastfeeding is also great for you as a parent. After pregnancy it does take a little while for your body to ‘repair’ itself, and breastfeeding actually helps this process. Another benefit of breast milk is that it has a calming toxin that affects both you and your child.
