Why breastfeeding gives baby best start!

August 21st, 2009 · No Comments



Doctors around the world are in total agreement: breastfed babies grow up fitter and stronger than those who are bottle fed. A massive amount of scientific evidence now makes it clear: Breastfed babies have a lower risk of tummy upsets, childhood diabetes, urine and ear infections and eczema. They’re also less likely to become obese and may even be smarter as a result.

There’s benefits for mum too. She’s at less risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer. And—one for the lads—she gets her figure back sooner! As well as the health benefits, millions of mums and dads testify to the lifestyle benefits of breastfeeding: it’s convenient, completely free and creates a bond between the entire family.

Tim Cooke, 29 from Swinton said: “I read all the leaflets and it was obvious that breastfeeding was the best thing for the baby. We talked about it a lot and when my partner was about 6 months pregnant, we made the decision to go for it.”

With dads getting more involved in these decisions from early in the pregnancy, an increasing number of babies are set to grow up fitter and stronger simply because they are breastfed.
