Breastfeeding Benefits Mothers

Ways that breastfeeding can make mothers life easier.
In case of breast feeding, mothers do not need bottles, nipples or formula milk to purchase. There is no need to sterilize the feeding bottle. Breast milk does not cause infection in baby in contrast to the formula milk; rather protects baby from common infections and keeps baby healthy; which saves money. Mothers do not need to get up in the middle of the night to warm the bottle.

Formula and feeding supplies can cost well over $1,500 each year, depending on how much your baby eats. Breastfed babies are also sick less often, which can lower health care costs.
Gives great feeling.

Breast feeding improves psychological bonding with the baby from which mother gets satisfaction. Physical contact is important to newborns. It can help them feel more secure, warm, and comforted. Breast feeding boosts mother’s oxytocin levels. Oxytocin is a hormone that helps milk flow and can calm the mother. It many times work as natural contraceptive, though for minimal period.
