Mother's Milk is the Best Milk

 

According to a study done by the National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom, about eight in ten women are breastfeeding their infants compared to six in ten in 1990. In addition, the ratio of breastfeeding increases causally with economic status; middle-class women with high-paying jobs and maternity leave are more likely to breastfeed than women of a lower socioeconomic status.

As you may know, there are many health benefits to breastfeeding. These include easy digestion for the infant, availability of rich and vital nutrients within breast milk, bio-availability (that is, how well the infant can use the nutrients for growth), and suitability. Infants who are fed breast milk have a lower risk of allergies, asthma, and are less likely to develop ear infections or other illnesses.
