Breast Feeding Also Good for Moms Health

http://www.diabetesincontrol.com/results.php?storyarticle=6686

The Women's health initiative showed a trend among women who had breast feed for more than a year in their lifetime

- 20% less risk of diabetes
- 12% less risk of high blood pressure
- 19% less high cholesterol and 9% less heart disease and stroke

although it could just be a maker for a healthier lifestyle, it is just another reason to breast feed.

I personally love it, its so convenient when out and about, my baby is thriving on it and its the best nutrition for little ones.

Its not always easy at first though but with determination and good support it can be a great success.

Feel free to email me (rebeccasubbiah@gmail.com) for support if needed.

  6. Haven't reached that stage of life yet but it does make biological sense that breastfeeding benefits both mother and child. Congrats on making it work for you! And thanks for stopping by my site :-)
