Breastfeeding Benefits for Mothers

Breastfeeding is the most natural way to breastfeed a baby. In the early 1900s, many health benefits of human milk were unknown; but today we are aware of all the wonderful health features, not just for babies but also for mothers.

o Baby care requires a lot of energy, especially when the baby is experiencing growth and demands frequent breastfeeding. Therefore, breastfeeding is the easiest diet in the world as it consumes an additional 500 to 1,000 calories a day. If you eat healthy this is an opportunity to shed unwanted pounds.

o By feeding the baby, the body releases the hormone oxytocin which helps to bind the uterus for the first few days after birth. This is helpful as it stops the bleeding of waste and the uterus recovers faster.

o Some studies show that breastfeeding is associated with breast cancer; If a woman is breastfeeding, she is at low risk for pre-menopausal breast cancer.

o Continuous breastfeeding prevents contraception by stopping ovulation. This phenomenon has been called "exogestation" - pregnancy outside of the womb - because the female's fertility system is programmed as if it were still pregnant. Breastfeeding sends messages to the body indicating the stage of infant development: more and more infants are eating contraceptives; However, if the baby is breastfed less often (less than every two hours), contraceptive protection may be lower.

o The risk of developing ovarian cancer, osteoporosis and lateral bone fractures has also been shown to be significantly lower during breastfeeding.

o Breastfeeding women are less likely to have heart disease, as they tend to have good cholesterol (HDL) levels in their blood.

o Mild postnatal mood disorders can be reduced or even prevented because body hormones make the mother feel more positive overall.

o Breastfeeding: it does not require you to buy a lot of equipment and formula milk savings can significantly increase.

Most importantly, breastfeeding mothers all agree that baby eating is accompanied by a very warm, comforting feeling that helps strengthen deep bonds. Even baby sucking hormones are released into the mother's restful body and relax to make it a very positive experience, especially when she is tired or depressed.
