Benefits of Breastfeeding

The American Academy of Pediatrics has long recommended breastfeeding as the healthiest form of nutrition for babies up to at least 12 months. Breastfeeding is natural, inexpensive, and promotes bonding between mother and baby. What’s more, breastfeeding boosts a baby’s immune system and reduces the infant’s risk of developing a variety of ailments, ranging from ear infections to sudden infant death syndrome.

A Lactation Consultant at MarinHealth Medical Center, Anne Hauss Davies helps new moms adjust to nursing and develop a feeding plan that works for both mother and baby. Hauss Davies also discusses some of the latest research into the benefits of breastfeeding, including for mothers. In addition to what’s being best for the baby, breastfeeding reduces a woman’s risk of developing osteoporosis and certain cancers.
