Did you know:  According to the US National Institutes of Health, breastfeeding carries many health benefits for infants and mothers, as well as potential economic and environmental benefits for communities. Among the known health benefits are nutritionally balanced meals, some protection against common childhood infections, and better survival during the first year of life, including a lower risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Research also shows that the skin-to-skin contact of breastfeeding may have physical and emotional benefits Other studies suggest that breastfeeding may reduce the risk for certain allergic diseases, asthma, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. It also may help improve an infant’s cognitive development. However, more research is needed to confirm these findings.
