Breast Feeding

 Proper nutrition at the early stage of life is of immense importance for growth and development of the infant. The basic mode of nutrition for newborns is breast milk.

Breastfeeding is the process of feeding milk to infants from a woman’s breast. It is recommended by health professionals that breastfeeding begins within the first hour of the baby’s life and may continue until the baby wants it. Breastfeeding decreases the risks of various diseases like respiratory tract infection, diarrhoea, asthma, food allergies, type 1 diabetes, leukaemia etc. It also helps lower chances of obesities in childhood.
