The time is getting close and you still haven’t decided if you want to nurse or bottle feed your new baby. Well let’s take a look at a few of the options and why you may want to consider nursing. First consider how convenient it will be for you to just get up in the middle of the night to nurse. No bottles to warm. Checking them and warming again. You just pick up your baby and the two of you settle down into your favorite chair to nurse. These are treasured times.
- The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends nursing.
Human milk is the preferred feeding for all infants, including premature and sick newborns. It’s more digestible then formula.
- Breast milk is an intestinal soother. Cow’s milk is intestinal irritant.
- Breastfeeding promotes bonding between mother and baby.
Hormones are stimulated during nursing to help with uterine contractions. Which helps it shrink more quickly. Getting back your figure more quickly. These same hormones help you relax and bond with your baby. They even help you sleep!
- Breastfeeding lowers your risk of breast cancer.
- Nursing helps mom lose weight after baby is born.
That’s a real positive immediate positive that you can see and enjoy!!! It may take a few months but that weight does start falling off with all the calories that are going into producing your healthy breastmilk. It really is a workout for your body even if you don’t hit the treadmill. (Speaking of – who needs a treadmill when you can push a stroller and spend quality outdoor time with your baby?!)
- Breast milk is always ready and comes in a nicer package than formula does. It’s also always the perfect temperature – so no microwaving or worrying about it being too hot or cold for your baby. PLUS it’s 100% ORGANIC and customized for your baby’s exact age!!!
