A mother's breast milk has antibodies that the baby needs to help fight disease. Breastfeeding makes the baby stronger in fighting disease and infection. Mothers should use discretion in breastfeeding, such as using a private room or covering herself with a towel, so as not to embarrass others. But, it is the best way to help the baby, in the early months of their life.
Breast milk is the best food for infants. It provides a complete meal, with the perfect mix of vitamins, nutrients, protein, calories and fat. It also provides babies with much needed antibodies to strengthen their immune systems. It is proven that babies who were breastfed have fewer childhood illness and a reduced risk of obesity, later in life. For the mother, it helps her body heal after childbirth, by naturally shrinking her uterus. It helps her lose the extra baby weight, by keeping her metabolism high, and it provides some amount of natural infertility to prevent having another baby too quickly. Some studies even suggest that women who nurse multiple babies for six months or more are at significantly reduced risk for breast and other female cancers. Although not all women are able to breastfeed, if possible, it is the best way to feed a baby.
Women should breastfeed their babies, if they want to do so. The choice should be entirely up to the mother. Studies indicate that breast-fed babies are generally healthier than bottle-fed babies. Yet, this is a very personal decision and should be left up to the mother. Breastfeeding should be done in private.
As a breastfeeding mom, myself, I see the benefits of breastfeeding very clearly. My son sleeps better at night after nursing, is very healthy, spits up a little more than formula fed babies, but it doesn't smell nearly as bad. I think that breastfed babies are able to get nutrients and bonding time with mom that formula fed babies do not.
Women have breasts for the one purpose of breastfeeding a baby. It has been proven that breast milk is far more nutritious for the infant than man-made baby formula. It is sad that this modern society we live in is offended at seeing a woman breastfeeding her infant in public, when it is just the natural thing to do.
It is the milk that was made for babies point blank. How are human's here right now... Because way back when... meaning the 50's when formula was starting to be produced... Most women were breastfeeding. Meaning that IF IT WASN'T FOR WOMEN BREASTFEEDING THE HUMAN RACE NEVER WOULD HAVE SURVIVED!
Women who are able should breastfeed their babies. It is more nutritious for infants than the chemicals in baby formula. Unfortunately, not all women are able to breastfeed their babies. Breastfeeding also creates a bond between the newborn and the mother, though not to say that women who are unable to breastfeed do not bond with their child. I think anytime that you can give your baby something natural instead of chemical, it is best. People should also make their own baby food as well in a food processor. Kids will eventually get enough chemicals in their bodies throughout life, but why not start them out in the healthiest way possible?
There are plenty of medical benefits to breastfeeding. Breastfeeding helps promote the child's growth better than artificial or non-human milks. It also provides the child with antibodies against infectious diseases, improving the chances that the child will be healthy. Medical benefits such as these should outweigh the social negatives, such as breastfeeding in public, or potential accidental exposure of a naked breast.
While some people argue against breastfeeding because they feel it is disgusting or inappropriate, it is likely those people have forgotten that breastfeeding is a natural process meant to help the baby. The breast milk produced by the mother is usually allergen free for the child and it includes many essential nutrients that help a baby fend off potential illnesses. Not only does breastfeeding help boost a babies immune system but it also helps develop a bond between mother and child. While formulas have boasted that they are as good as breast milk they will never be able to fully replicate it and the bonding experience between mother and child will surely be lost.
I think women ought to breastfeed their babies if it's possible, at least for a little while. It's better for a baby, it helps the mother lose weight, and it gives the infant time to get the closeness and nurturing that it needs for the beginning of life outside the womb. It is free, it is healthy for a baby and it's convenient, but really it is up to the mom as to what she thinks is best. I say do it if you can.
I agree women should breastfeed their babies. It is the natural thing to do and a mothers milk is always the best for the baby, but I also think it should not be done in a public place. There's no reason for little children to see that. Do it at home or in a private place where nobody will be offended by having a breast sticking out for them to see.
Women breasts are naturally provided with the hormones, which starts secreting after giving birth. It is also a good natural food. God has blessed women's breast with all the proper biological features necessary for feeding a baby. Research shows that babies feeding on mother's milk are more immune than babies feeding on other foods.
The absolutely best food for a human baby is human baby milk. This is composed of exactly what a baby needs for growth. It's how we've survived so far as a human race! There are and have always been women who have not been able to nurse their babies, historically this has been most often because of high rates of mortality in and around childbirth. People have always known how to take care of this and arranged for a wet nurse for the baby. Today, there are breast milk banks where women can pump excess milk and donate it for babies in hospitals.
If women are able, breast feeding their baby is usually the healthier way to feed the baby. A mother's milk has antibodies and nutrients the baby needs, and is usually easier for the baby to digest than formula. Breast feeding is also healthier because it will adjust to match the babies needs. At each feeding, if everything goes well, the baby will get the amount of milk it needs, and the milk will change over time to suit the baby's changing nutritional requirements. It also saves the money that would otherwise be spent on formula. Overall, it's a very smart choice for women to breast feed their babies.
I don't even know why a mother wouldn't breast feed her child. People are getting ridiculously pretentious and ridiculous. First, with the vaccines cause autism and now breast feeding is bad? Come on guys. Nothing will happen to your kids if you breastfeed. This has been done for millennia, and no one suffered. So grow up and stop finding problems where there aren't any.
Breastfeeding is the most natural way to feed your infant. Recent studies have even proven that breast-fed babies have higher IQs later in life people who were fed formula as an infant. Additionally, breast milk passes on antibodies to infants that aid in their digestion and the growth of their immune systems. There is no question that breastfeeding is the best way for an infant to grow and develop.
As long as it is possible to nurse your infant yes, science has proven it is the healthiest option for your child. However, it is not immoral if you do not, for whatever reason, choose this option. It is simply the best choice, both for the mom and the baby - a great way to bond and to pass on immunity while providing the best nourishment.
Scientific studies have shown that mother's breast milk is essential for the proper growth and health of the baby. When it's essential for the betterment of our child, as a parent, it becomes our moral duty and responsibility to do the needful. Further, it's the most natural thing for all mammals.
Restricting breast feeding to the infants in the name of figure and beauty of mother is foolishness and can lead to many health and growth associated problems for the children in the future. Breast milk is the genuine right and requirement of a child and a mother who cares for her child will never hesitate to breast feed her child.
Now I am not saying they have to but it is the best thing for the baby. Lately people have been freaking out about women breastfeeding in public but really it's those that are freaking out that have the problem. The baby has to eat and that is the best way for them to get the nutrients they need.
I am a Psychologist and apon further review of this topic I have found that children Often develop Parinoia, Schizofrenia, Manic Depressive dissorder, and other diseases when breast fed.
