Why is Breastfeeding Important?

Being able to breastfeed your child is a blessing. That being said, breast milk is always the best choice for newborn babies. It provides all the nutrition your baby needs for the first 6 months of life. The continuation of breastfeeding afterwards can bring plenty of benefits for both the mothers and babies.

Breastfeeding is effective in reducing early childhood deaths. It also helps to protect your baby against a range of infections, allergies and other medical conditions. Some of the benefits of breastfeeding come from keeping your baby close with you after birth. This skin-to-skin contact itself will bring a feeling of closeness and connection. Other benefits of breast milk include – 

For the baby:

  • Colostrum in breast milk contains high amounts of carbohydrates, protein and antibodies.
  • Helps regulate healthy bacteria in the baby’s gut.
  • Contains lactose and essential fatty acids that help a baby’s brain grow and develop.
  • Reduces the risk of Sudden Infant Death (SID).
  • Protects babies from ear and chest infections, allergies, diabetes, diarrhea and other medical conditions.

For the mother:

  • Milk production helps with post-partum weight loss.
  • Reduces risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer and osteoporosis.
  • Decreased risk of iron-deficiency anemia while nursing.
  • Release of oxytocin helps to prevent postpartum hemorrhage and to reduce the uterus to pre-pregnancy size.

3 Breastfeeding Tips That You’ll Love

In conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week,  we want to help new mothers to embrace breastfeeding. BabyOrganix is here to create awareness of breastfeeding for the growth of the baby. For those who are going to be new parents, it’s time to plan. Let us discuss some important breastfeeding tips for new mothers! 

  1. Know Your Baby Anticipation
    You don’t have to wait for your baby to cry and wail for milk. When your baby is hungry, they’ll will show these few signs:
    – Open and close their mouths.
    – Stick out their tongue.
    – Suck on whatever object is near.
    – Turn and raise their head repeatedly.
    – Head turning to look for the breast.
  2. Get Your Posture Right
    Remember to relax and be comfortable. You’ll be spending a significant amount of time holding your baby to your breast while they feed. Find the right position without straining both the mother’s and the baby’s body. Some of the comfortable positions like laid-back feeding, cradle hold, crossover, and side-lying; that are recommended by experts.
  3. Stay Hydrated
    To make sure you have enough milk all the time, remember self care. Start by taking good care of your diet and drink lots of water. We can’t stress enough how important this tip is for you and your baby. Producing milk requires energy and nutrients. Having a balanced diet really helps!
