Advantages of Breastfeeding to Neonate

Hello friends!
On the International Breastfeeding week, I would like to share the advantages of Breastfeeding in neonates.

Advantages of breastfeeding to the neonate 
❖ Breast milk provides optimum nutrition for babies. 
❖ During breastfeeding, approximately 0.25-0.5 grams per day of secretory antibodies IgA antibodies pass to the baby via milk. This is one of the most important features of colostrum. 
❖ Breast milk contains several anti-infective factors such as bile salt stimulated lipase and lactoferrin. 
❖ Bile salt stimulated lipase protects against amoebic infections and lactoferrins bind to iron and inhibits the growth of intestinal bacteria. 
❖ Breastfeed infants tend to have fewer cavities and promote proper development of babies' jaw and teeth. 
❖ Babies benefit emotionally because they are held more. 
❖ Breastfed infants tend to have higher IQs due to good brain development early in life. 
❖ In the long term, breastfed babies have a decreased risk of malnutrition, obesity, and heart disease compared to formula-fed babies.
That's all.
Thank you
