Benefits of Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding is the best choice in feeding infants given the many medical and developmental benefits for baby and mother. All major medical organizations promote breastfeeding for optimal child health and development and recommend breastfeeding for as long as both mom and child want to continue.
Learning about breastfeeding while you are pregnant can help you to be more successful at breastfeeding when your baby is born. There are many advantages to both you and your baby and you can learn more about them by taking a breastfeeding class. Learn more about the benefits of breastfeeding here.
