According to health experts, breastfeeding is the healthiest option for both mom and baby. From reducing your baby’s risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) ─ to lowering mom’s risk for breast cancer and depression, breastfeeding benefits are unquestionable!
Healthcare experts also recommend that moms should feed their babies only breastmilk for the first six months. In the United States, more than 80% of U.S. mothers breastfeed their newborns, but less than 30% of moms breastfeed until the six-month recommended time. So why is that…?
Because breastfeeding can be emotionally and physically tough! Although the breastfeeding process is natural, problems can occasionally arise. And sadly, it is also not uncommon for some moms to experience low milk supply.
With that being said, yes breastmilk is best…. but there are other options for the thousands of mothers and families who struggle with nursing and low breastmilk-production.
