What do I need to know?

Breast milk is the best possible food for your baby.   It will build your babies immune system as well as giving them the best possible start in life.  It protects babies against ear infections, gastro-intestinal infections, chest infections, urine infections, childhood diabetes, eczema, obesity, asthma. Breastfeeding protects mums against ovarian cancer, breast cancer and weak bones later in life. (source: National Health Service, 2009).  What’s more breast milk is free, on tap and is always the right temperature. Breastfeeding is also great for bonding with your baby.
