If you were able to produce milk for your child and had no complications with feeding, would you be more willing to feed your baby that way? Or would you still pick formula? It’s an important decision the mom has to make not only for herself but for her child as well. Moms still today don’t know the benefits of breastfeeding and are quick to pick up a can of formula because of rumors or just lack of education on the subject. The benefits of breast feeding extend well beyond basic nutrition.
The breast milk boosts the immune system, allows the child to grow big and strong, and even makes them smarter. Despite all of these positive aspects of breastfeeding, when people see a mother in public breastfeeding her child, they become a little disgusted. Breastfeeding in public is legal in the United States of America. Although, some people would rather it not be. People have left restaurants, told the mother to relocate to the restroom, and even suggested the mother to stay home during the duration, all because she was breastfeeding her child.
Any infant enters the world completely relying on their mother, whether it’s to provide security, comfort, or their first meal. Breastfeeding, although pretty self-explanatory, is the act of a woman feeding a baby with milk from her breast. It is recommended that a baby be breastfed for the first time within an hour of their birth and exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life (Belsky, 2012). However, there is a stigma attached to breastfeeding in some areas of the world, especially the United States, so a common alternative is formula. There are many benefits not only the infant can gain from being breastfed, but also benefits the mother can obtain from providing this nutrition for her child.
Breast-feeding is a process that involves an infant suckling its mother’s breast in order to get some milk. Breast milk can sometimes be substituted with baby formula for a number of reasons. These reasons may be death of the infant’s mother, the mother’s being a working mother and is always away, and some mothers just opt for baby formula. The formula has a number of advantages: it is readily available, cheaper, and easy to control. Breast milk is sometimes referred to as the line of equal measure between the very rich parents and the poor parents (Pryor & Kathleen, 2010).
Benefits of Breastfeeding While researching about the benefits of breastfeeding I found many advantages to it. The longer a mother breastfeeds her baby, there is a higher chance that her baby will get the healthy benefits of breastfeeding. There are many benefits to breastfeeding for the mother, child, and society. The benefits for a breastfeeding baby are: early breast milk is called liquid gold, it is easier to digest, it fights diseases, and it changes as your baby grows. Doctors tell breastfeeding mothers to breast feed their baby until it is up to 2 years of age.
Breastfeeding for Diabetic Women Breastfeeding has been associated with many health benefits for children. Mothers are recommended to breastfeed immediately after delivery, in the delivery room. The first milk is very important to the future health of the baby and many research activities conducted over the years, have confirmed this. This paper shall discuss a research carried out by Chertok, Raz, Shoham, Haddad and wiznitzer (2009) to show the importance of breastfeeding by diabetic mothers. This paper seeks to show that indeed, breastfeeding is crucial to the health of a baby despite the diabetic status of the mother.
From the moment that babies are pulled from the womb, skin to skin contact becomes vital in the first moments of the new life of the baby. This skin to skin contact includes the art of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding, although surrounded by significant societal criticism, provides significant benefits to both the mother and the baby. By providing crucial nutrients to their children, mothers are not only benefiting their children, they are benefiting themselves. Breastfeeding has been a widely used source of nutrition since the early days of mankind, though during the late nineteenth century, formula began to become a replacement (“Breastfeeding in public” 1).
