by , Saturday, November 04, 2017

Second best thing a mother can offer her infant besides love is breast milk which is recommended as the first source of nutrition for a newborn. Considered as the sole source of nutrition for the first six months of life, breast milk helps an infant build growth for the lifetime.

A mother understands what a child does not say

With hectic schedule and a busy life, mothers of modern era often get insufficient time for the young ones. This has considerably affected breastfeeding their young ones in a negative way as compared to the past. Nowadays, it's seen that a lot of mothers are working, rather than sitting at home and taking care of children and doing household chores. The source of nutrition for a newborn for the first six months of life helps an infant build growth for the lifetime.

Here are a few important benefits every newborn gets from breast feeding:

Mother’s mental alignment
