Breastfeeding is Normal and Healthy for Babies and Moms!
Why Should You Breastfeed?
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, breast milk has disease-fighting cells called antibodies that help protect infants from germs, illness, and even sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Breastfeeding is linked to a lower risk of various health problems for babies, including:
- Ear infections
- Stomach viruses
- Respiratory infection
- Atopic dermatitis
- Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes
- Childhood leukemia

Benefits of Breast Feeding
Breastfeeding is the best way to provide essential nutrients while also bonding with your child. However, it’s unrealistic to think you’ll be with your baby 24/7. So how do you feed your child when you’re apart?
Breast pumps give you the freedom to go back to work, have a date night or take an overnight trip while still providing your baby with the best food source possible. Pumping can make you more comfortable when you’re away, and if your baby is having trouble latching, pumping will keep your supply full while working through that issue. By pumping, you can stockpile breast milk for the times you’re unable to breastfeed. You can even sleep through a feeding while dad feeds the baby at 3 AM!
