- Breastfeed your baby and you reduce risk of developing chronic conditions, such as type I diabetes, celiac disease and Crohn’s disease in your baby.
- Breastfeeding women are on lower risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis; due to the fact that that when a woman is pregnant and lactating, her body absorbs calcium much more efficiently, so while some bones, particularly those in the spine and hips, may be a bit less dense at weaning, six months later, they are denser than before pregnancy.
- Breastfeeding mothers and breast fed babies are more likely not to become obese.
- Sudden infant death syndrome is lowered by half if the baby is breast fed.
- When baby nurses oxytocin is released this helps the uterus contract, reducing post-delivery blood loss. Plus, breastfeeding helps uterus return to its normal size quicker.
- Breastfeeding can decrease baby’s risk of some childhood cancers. And breastfeeding mother is on a lower risk of premenopausal breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
- Breastfeeding your baby around the clock—no bottles or formula— will delay ovulation, which means delayed menstruation.
