Benefits of Breastfeeding For Mom:

  1. Nursing uses up extra calories, making it easier to lose the pounds of pregnancy.
  2. Breastfeeding lowers the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
  3. Breastfeeding can help a mother to bond with her baby. Physical contact is important to newborns and can help babies feel more secure.
  4. Breast milk is always available and ready! No more bottles to clean and no more formula to mix! Breast milk is always ready and does not require mom to mix anything or heat any milk!
