How breastfeeding for 6 months affects the growth of a new born

Breastfeeding is an activity that all mothers are encouraged to indulge their baby in for the first months of their lives. This is due to the fact that all the nutrition that babies are supposed to receive in the initial months, comes from this breast milk only. There are plenty of benefits that breast milk offers to a baby.

  • The colostrum, which is the thick yellow fluid that is produced in the first days after birth, from the breasts, is one of the richest sources of nutrients that your baby can have.
  • It is high in protein and low in sugar, and other than this, it also consists of many nutrients, essential for the well being of your baby.
  • Thanks to the colostrum, your baby’s digestive tract starts developing properly.
  • After a few days post the delivery, the breasts will start producing large amounts of milk. By this time, thanks to the colostrum, your baby’s stomach has grown to adapt to the quantity of the milk.
  • Breast milk also contains a lot of antibodies, specifically in the colostrum, and it helps your baby fight off various bacteria and viruses.
  • Breastfeeding reduces the chances of your baby contracting many illnesses like gut infections, colds and similar infections, and even mild ear infections as well.

Regular breastfeeding also helps your baby maintain a healthy weight and keeps him/her away from getting obese.
