How Breast Feeding Benefits Your Infant

Sleeping Infant FDP Credit Maggie SmithWhile breast feeding is something you have to learn, once you have the process down and your baby is getting sufficient nutrition at each feeding, you and she will start seeing some real benefits. You pass on natural immunity through your breast milk to your baby. This immunity carries her through until she starts receiving regular immunizations.

As you sit down and feed your baby, this is the perfect opportunity to develop an emotional connection with her. Whether you are feeding her in the middle of the night or during the day, the chance to gaze into her eyes helps the two of you make that connection. Learn more about breastfeeding by reading our Bright Hub guides.
