You may be wondering what this huge controversy surrounding breastfeeding and formula feeding is about. Bottom line is: whichever way a mom feeds her baby is good enough as long as the baby is fed. The real question is whether you want your baby to have an “OK” start in life or you want your baby to get a kick (and head) start.
According to the World Health Organisation if every child was breastfed within an hour of birth, given only breastmilk for their first six months of life, and continued breastfeeding up to the age of two years, about 220 000 child lives would be saved every year.
Breastfeeding is so much more than just feeding, it is the foundation you want to lay to keep your child healthy and balanced for life. It is the natural way of nurturing your baby.
It is the best and yet the cheapest investment of your life right into your baby’s life with possibly the highest return ever. It is the foundation you want to lay to keep your child healthy and balanced for life. It is the way to help your baby’s optimal development mentally, emotionally, physically and socially.
Holding your baby in your arms and gazing into her eyes while nursing, listening to her cues about her needs is helping you to learn about your baby and become the best possible mother.
Breastfeeding will help your baby to learn about you, learn about life, trust and safety of your arms. It will help her to learn about your unconditional love for her, to help her experience your caring and ever-loving presence the most intimate way possible.
