Why should I breastfeed?

Breastfeeding can make life simpler and healthier. Breast milk supplies all of your baby’s nutritional needs during the first 6 months of life, as well as numerous other advantages that will help your baby grow up strong and sound. However, learning the fundamentals of breastfeeding, on the other hand, can help you and your baby make the most of this wonderful time together. It may take some time for you and your child to get into a routine, so don’t be concerned if it doesn’t happen straight away. Call your doctor if you have any questions or concerns, or if you just need assistance getting started.
It’s also important to realize that breastfeeding is not something you should do or feel obligated to do against your choice. Therefore, if this is a connection you’d like to pursue, we’d be delighted to share some of the reasons why breastfeeding is a great decision for both your and your baby’s health.
