The Miraculous Content of Breast Milk
This is one of the reasons why breast milk is unique and protective. It changes shape according to your baby's needs and growth as you breastfeed. Breast milk in the first months and six months and later breast milk changes. Intestinal flora is common when babies are first born. For this reason, gas problem in babies is quite common. However, these problems are less in breastfed babies.
Breast milk does not tire the baby. Breast milk, which contains less salt and protein than cow's milk, does not tire the baby's kidneys. There is more calcium and iron in breast milk than cow's milk or formula. For this reason, calcium and iron deficiency are less common in breastfed babies. One of the biggest factors of breast milk is immunity protection. Thanks to the protective antibodies in breast milk, it especially protects against diseases such as ear infections and colds.
It is not only beneficial for health but also psychologically beneficial for both mother and baby. Breastfed babies bond more quickly with their mother. Thanks to the hormones secreted by breastfeeding mothers, mother and baby bond more closely with each other, which is very important for the psychological development of the baby in the future.
