Once you have given birth, breast feeding is the most important thing you are able to do to protect your infant and help to promote good health. Best of all, breast feeding is absolutely free.

Along with saving you money on Human Milk Replacement, breast feeding can help you to keep your medical bills down as well. Infants that are fed with cow milk seem to get sick more often and more severely than infants that are breast fed. They also get more ear infections, respiratory tract infection, and other medical problems.

This will be even more reliable if your family has had a history of allergic reaction. Once an infant is breast fed, the antibodies pass on from the mother to the infant, helping to protect against sickness and allergies. As the babyís system grows, his body can start to make itís own antibodies, and he will be more equipped to handle sensitivities of food.

Breast feeding provides a lot of benefits for the mother as well. The baby sucking at the breast can cause contractions right after birth, making less bleeding for the mother, and helping her uterus to itís contour prior to pregnancy much faster.
