Don’t Let Sore Nipples Keep You From Breastfeeding
Posted on July 23 2014
With all the numerous recent studies pointing out that there are many advantages and benefits to be gained from breastfeeding, more mothers are making the choice to breastfeed. According to the CDC’s 2013 Breastfeeding Report Card, the number of new moms deciding to breastfeed their infants has climbed to 77%. Breast milk provides infants with all the essential nutrients and antibodies that are required for healthy development and fighting off common childhood illnesses. The World Health Organization (WHO) also explains that teens and adults who were breastfed also have lower risks for obesity and type-2 diabetes, as well performing better on intelligence tests than those who weren’t breastfed.
