Breastmilk is always the best choice for babies. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) as well as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, breastfeeding exclusively is highly recommended among babies within six months. It should continue for another year combined with other food such as vegetables, proteins, grains, and fruits from six months of age.
Breastmilk contains a mix of proteins, vitamins, and fat in an easily digestible form for your infant. It contains antibodies that ward off viruses and bacteria. Babies that are breastfed also have a lower risk of suffering from allergies, asthma, respiratory illnesses, and diarrhea. This means that you will have fewer hospitalization and trips to your Pedia.
However, breastfeeding is a very hard job. You will have to dedicate most of your time to your baby and of course, when your baby becomes older, you will have to endure those small bites every now and then.
These bites may trigger wounds in your nipple and it is very painful.
A video of a baby pulling the nipple of her mother is already painful to watch. How much more, the mother who’s the one truly experiencing the pain.
But then, a mother’s love is exceptional. They can endure all the pain from breastfeeding.
Every mother is different. There are some who can’t produce milk and they should never be shamed
