Mothers who have small children are not strange to the expression 'Breast milk is the best food for babies'. And also not by accident that this statement is widely recognized as correct. Breastfeeding has many benefits that many mothers have not known yet.

Help motherhood be more binding

When breastfeeding, mother's uterus will be retracted early, which prevents postpartum blood loss. Breastfeeding also stimulates to create milk, and establishes the bond between mother and child. In addition, some studies also show that those who do not breastfeed are at higher risk of cancer than those with breastfeeding.

Increases resistance to baby

Colostrum is rich in nutrients and antibodies that protect infants from infection. Babies’ immune system is still far from perfect, so breastfeeding is a shield helping children increase resistance.

Increase children’s IQ

In 2008, researchers at McGill University discovered that those who have breastfed will have better result in IQ tests at age 6.

Professor Michael Kramer believes: "Breastfeeding in a long time helps develop children’s awareness and intelligence."

Recent research shows that the fatty acids in breast milk may rouse the development of brain, but other scientists believe that the close relationship between mother and baby is created during breastfeeding creating positive response to the child's brain.

Breastfeeding is associated with the position in society

A 2007 study showed that infants are breastfed will be more successful when growing up. Bristol University research team has observed 1400 children born from 1937 to 1939 for 60 years. Children who were breastfed have higher social ladder than bottle-fed infants by 41%. Children breastfed in a long time will adapt more quickly to changes, research result indicated.

Women who have a stable job also tend to breastfeed longer than those who do many different jobs.

Reduced risk of sudden death syndrome (SIDS) in infants

The American scientists examined data from 18 different studies to find an association between breastfeeding and sudden death, and found that exclusively breastfed infants in the early months was 73% lower risk of sudden death than other children.

The researcher suggested that breastfeeding helps children reduce diarrhea, respiratory infections and strengthen immune system, these factors are thought to be associated with sudden death.

Breastfeeding reduces the risk of obesity

Breastfed children tend to gain weight more slowly than bottle-fed infants. So simple, in breast milk contains leptin insulin (hormone adjusts appetite). Moreover, newborns often stop breastfeeding when they no longer feel hungry. This is the foundation to help form healthy eating habits when they are adult.

More information

When deciding to breastfeed, most women worry and wonder "How long for each breastfeeding time is reasonable?"

In fact that, the needs of each child is not the same. Some babies cry for sucking just half an hour after the first time but some are until 3-4 hours later having sign to 'recharge'. Therefore, you should base on actual needs of your child for making feeding time so that reasonable. On average, each child sucks about 8-12 times in 24 hours. Mothers can breastfeed their babies fully as follows:

o   Wet diapers: 6-8 times in 24 hours

o   Very thick excrement: average 6-8 times in 24 hours and at least once a day during the first 2 months.

o   Weight gain is steady and consistent with age.

American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that, you are never to exceed 4 hours at night and 3 hours during the day without breastfeeding. If babies sleep deep, you should gently awake them to make sure that they receive enough breast milk. Some children have a 'disease' to be breastfed even when not having been awaked yet.
