Similac Mom - By Megan Kelly

[CLOSED] Similac Mom on the basics of breastfeeding

Many Pregnant women have concerns on whether they will succeed in breastfeeding or if they will produce enough milk. For first-time mothers, breastfeeding can be a harrowing experience, but it is a learned skill, help is at hand from your doctor, midwife, nurse or healthcare professionals.

When it comes to feeding your baby it’s important to know and understand the benefits of breast milk:

  • Breast milk contains the perfect balance of nutrients to help your baby fight infection and common child illness
  • Breast milk is convenient, always available and is delivered at the right temperature
  • Breastfeeding helps stimulate your uterus to return to its pre-pregnant state
  • Breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer

Breast milk is all your baby needs in its first four to six months of life, but you need to continue eating a well-balanced diet because what you eat or drink may affect both you and your baby.

    Would love to have had this when I gave birth but 19 months later here I am still breastfeeding. With my first two kids I breastfed till they were both 3 years old and I will most definitely give my baby the same opportunity
