Breastfeeding, also known as nursing is the feeding of babies and children from a woman’s breast. According to some paediatricians, this natural method of feeding your baby is the best way to fulfil your child’s nutritional requirements for the first six months of its life. Dr. Tauseef Rauf shares a similar view. He discussed some of the most important benefits of breastfeeding for newborns in his interview with oladoc.
Breastfeeding your baby exclusively for the first six months provides the baby with ideal nutrition. It is a complete blend of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats– everything that your baby needs to grow healthy. Moreover, it is provided in an easily digestible form such in contrast to formula milk. Breastfeeding also contains antibodies, particularly in colostrum that help fight various bacteria and viruses.
Moreover, babies who are exclusively breastfed also have fewer respiratory illnesses, fewer ear infections, and diarrhea attacks. Dr. Rauf further explains that babies who are breastfed also have fewer trips to the doctor and fewer hospitalizations.
