1. A healthier baby
The incidences of pneumonia, colds and viruses are reduced among breastfed babies.

2. Long-term protection, too
Breastfeeding the baby reduces the risk of developing chronic conditions, such as type I diabetes, celiac disease and Crohn's disease.

3. Better healing postdelivery
The oxytocin released when the baby nurses helps the mother's uterus contract, reducing postdelivery blood loss. Plus, breastfeeding will help the mother's uterus return to its normal size more quickly—at about six weeks postpartum, compared with 10 weeks if the mother's doesn't breastfeed.

4. Less risk of cancer
Breastfeeding can decrease the baby's risk of some childhood cancers. And the mother too will have a lower risk of premenopausal breast cancer and ovarian cancer, an often deadly disease that's on the rise.

5. A custom-made supply
Formula isn't able to change its constitution, but the mother's breast milk morphs to meet the baby's changing needs. Colostrum—the "premilk" that comes in after the mother delivers—is chock-full of antibodies to protect the newborn baby. "It's also higher in protein and lower in sugar than 'full' milk, so even a small amount can hold off the baby's hunger.

6. A menstruation vacation
Breastfeeding the baby around the clock—no bottles or formula— will delay ovulation, which means delayed menstruation. "Breastfeeding causes the release of prolactin, which keeps estrogen and progesterone at bay so ovulation isn't triggered.

7. There's nothing easier
The mother just has to simply pull up her shirt and nurse. Breast milk is always available and always at the right temperature.

8. More effective vaccines
Research shows that breastfed babies have a better antibody response to vaccines than formula-fed babies.

9. Breast Milk Promotes a Healthy Weight:

Breastfeeding promotes healthy weight gain and helps prevent childhood obesity. Studies show that obesity rates are 15–30% lower in breastfed babies, compared to formula-fed babies. The duration is also important, as each month of breastfeeding reduces the child's risk of future obesity by 4%. This may be due to the development of different gut bacteria. Breastfed babies have higher amounts of beneficial gut bacteria, which may affect fat storage. Babies fed on breast milk also have more leptin in their systems than formula-fed babies. Leptin is a key hormone for regulating appetite and fat storage. Breastfed babies also self-regulate their milk intake. They're better at eating only until they've satisfied their hunger, which helps them develop healthy eating patterns.

10. It Also Saves Time and Money:

To top the list, breastfeeding is completely free and requires very little effort.

By choosing to breastfeed, the mother won't have to:

  • Spend money on formula.
  • Calculate how much her baby needs to drink daily.
  • Spend time cleaning and sterilizing bottles.
  • Mix and warm up bottles in the middle of the night (or day).
  • Figure out ways to warm up bottles while on the go.

Breast milk is always at the right temperature and ready to drink.
