The benefits of breastfeeding are widely recognized. Breast milk aids in the development of the baby's own immune system and the health benefits of breastfeeding last a lifetime. A breastfed baby is not only less prone to illness, such as ear infections, respiratory disease, digestive illness, SIDs and more, she/he is less likely to contact other diseases throughout life.
