These things include-but not limited to- a good education, health, a good plan for the future, good upbringing, culture, morals and heritage. For the children to have a good health, they need to be well fed (with the right and appropriate food) and cared for properly.

 

For good health of babies, breastfeeding is paramount. Breast milk contains all the vitamins and nutrients a baby needs in the first half year of its life.

Studies have shown clearly that breast milk is stuffed with disease-eliminating substances that protect the baby from all types of illness.

Breast milk is best for your baby, and the benefits of breastfeeding extend well beyond basic nutrition.

 

This is one reason researchers recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months- although any amount of breastfeeding is beneficial. Scientific studies have shown that breastfeeding is good for the health of the mother as well.

 

This week world Breastfeeding Week is being celebrated. This will bring to the fore the significance of breastfeeding.
