Breast Milk

The news about babies and children with bad nutrition in the TV lately makes me as a mother sad. It must be because of their economic condition.

I’m very grateful that I can give breast milk to my babies. Well, we all know that breastfeeding is the best for baby. Why?


  • Breast milk provides sugars, fats, protein, and vitamins that are just right for your baby
  • Breast milk may help keep your baby from getting sick
  • Sucking on the breast is good for your baby's jaw
  • It helps future teeth grow straight
  • Free, you don’t have to pay
  • You can give breast milk anytime your baby wants
  • You don't have spending time to sterilize bottles
  • You don’t have to warm the milk up
  • Breast-feeding helps you recover from childbirth and appear to improve your long-term health

Give your baby breast milk exclusively until age 6 month, nothing else besides breast milk, than you can combine it with baby’s food. If you can, keep continue breast feeding your child at least 2 times a day until they are 2 years old.

I think breast milk is the most precious gift that you can give to your baby.

So... Why Not?
