Quality Of Life

An estimated 820,000 infant deaths under the age of five can be prevented worldwide every year by increasing breastfeeding. Breastfeeding reduces the risk of tract and respiratory infections, both developing and developing. Other benefits include lower risk of asthma, dietary allergies, and type 1 diabetes. Breastfeeding can also improve brain development and reduce the risk of obesity in adulthood. Mothers may feel pressure to breastfeed, but in the developed world babies often grow normally when they are fed a bottle. Breastfeeding, also known as nursing, is to feed babies and babies with milk from a woman's breast. Health experts recommend that breastfeeding start within the first hour of a baby's life and continue as often as the baby wants. In the first weeks of life babies can breastfeed approximately every two to three hours, and the feed time is usually 10 to 15 minutes per breast. Older children do not get much nutrition. Mothers can pump milk for later use when breastfeeding is not available. Breastfeeding has many benefits for mom and baby, which baby formula does not have.
