The benefits of breastfeeding



More and more women are aware of the benefits of breastfeeding, but very few are aware of the risks that early termination of breastfeeding brings.

The message that breast milk is the best is equally well known. It is known that breastfeeding breastfeeding comes with a number of benefits for babies, compared to babies who are fed formula.
Not as well known are the risks associated with the cessation of breastfeeding too early, and while many in the world accept that breastfeeding it is the healthiest way to feed the baby, yet I do not understand the fact that formula-fed babies have a higher chance of bloating.
The World Health Organization recommends that babies be breastfed breast until the age of 2 and should not be fed anything other than breast milk in the first 6 months of life.
