Breastfeeding helps your baby in many ways, according to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development:
Breast milk contains the right balance of nutrients for your newborn.
Breast milk is available on demand; your baby doesn't have to wait for you to warm a bottle or mix up formula.
Breast milk helps protect your baby against common childhood illnesses and infections, including diarrhea and ear infections.
Breast milk contains certain fatty acids that help your baby's brain develop.
