Why breastfeed?

On Baby Preferred we care about the most important person in your life… Your children! That’s why we give you recommendations to enjoy your motherhood and give the best to your children.

Today we are going talk about Breastfeeding, because it’s one of the most important decisions you will make: How are you going to feed your baby? Deciding to breastfeed can give your baby the best possible start in life, but Do you really know its benefits?

They’re many, but we’ll tell you one of the most important reasons to do it:

  • Breastfeeding protects your baby from a long list of illnesses: like stomach viruses, lower respiratory illnesses, ear infections and more!
  • It can protect your baby from developing allergies: because babies who are fed a formula based on cow’s milk or soy tend to have more allergic reactions than breastfed babies.
  • It boosts your child’s intelligence: because it helps cognitive development.
  • It can protect your children from obesity.
  • It reduces your baby’s risk of SIDS.
  • It reduces your stress levels and your risk of postpartum depression
  • It could reduce your risk of some types of cancer

And we are sure there are more benefits. But the most beautiful and important benefit is the connection between the baby and his mother:

In your arms or snuggled alongside you, your baby is nurtured by the snuggly warmth of your body and comforted by your familiar scent (pheromones). He hears the beat of your heart and the sound of your voice. His neurons and hormones program him to desire and flourish in this environment — a mean of ensuring his protection, survival and optimal development. And when allowed, your baby’s powerful imprint on your pheromonal messages is second only to his programmed need and yearning for sucking.

That’s one of the most beautiful thing of being mom! Don’t lose it!
