20 Great Reasons to Breastfeed Your Baby

Ten Great Reasons for You

  1. Breastfeeding helps you get your figure back faster. Weight loss can be easier, and it helps your uterus return to normal size more quickly.
  2. Your breast milk is always ready. No mixing, measuring or heating. No sterilization and refrigeration. No cleanup.
  3. Nighttime feedings are quick and easy.
  4. Breastfeeding saves money; there is nothing to buy.
  5. Going out is simple. Breastfed babies are easy to take along.
  6. Breastfeeding is a warm and cozy time for you and your baby.
  7. It helps you feel close to your baby and feel confident about yourself as a mother.
  8. You can feel good about yourself; your family will be proud, too.
  9. You can even read to an older child while you breastfeed your baby. It's a great time for everyone to cuddle.
  10. Breastfeeding is a special gift only you can give your baby.

Ten Great Reasons for Your Baby

  1. Breast milk helps your baby grow up strong and healthy.
  2. Breast milk is the perfect food for your baby. It's just what your baby needs in just the right amounts.

  5. Your baby will have less colic, constipation and diarrhea.
  6. Your baby's diapers will have very little odor.
  7. Your early breast milk gives your baby protection against disease. Your baby will have fewer doctor visits and fewer trips to the hospital.
  8. Breastfed babies have fewer earaches and colds.
  9. They also have less asthma, food allergies and eczema.

Breastfeeding is special to your baby. Your baby will always know.
