Breastfeeding is the normal way to feed your baby. Your milk has all the ingredients in the right amounts to give your baby a healthy start. Your milk is always ready and easy to digest... Nursing helps you relax and feel close to your baby. Breastfeeding is a gift only you can give to your child and it provides benefits to your baby that last a lifetime!
The American Academy of Pediatrics encourages mothers to provide only mother's milk for the first 6 months and to continue to give mother's milk while giving other family foods for at least 12 months and beyond, as long as desired by both mother and infant/child.
