Benefits Of Breastfeeding

How your pediatricians in Ventura, CA, can help you care for your baby

You want your baby to thrive, and an important part of this is meeting your baby’s dietary needs, especially when your baby is a newborn. That’s where breastfeeding comes in. Breastfeeding is the best way to make sure your baby thrives.

The pediatricians of Surfside Pediatrics in Ventura, CA, provide a wide range of children’s medical services, including counseling on breastfeeding.

There are many important benefits of breastfeeding. Let’s look at just a few of them:

  • Breastfeeding provides your baby with optimal nutrition, including the perfect balance of vitamins and nutrients.
  • Breast milk is digested easily and absorbed more effectively, with less stomach upset.
  • Breastfeeding is no cost to you; formula can cost 60-200 dollars per month, depending on the brand of formula.
  • Breast milk is ready anytime, with no preparation required. It also comes out at just the right temperature for your baby.
  • Breast milk contributes to a healthy immune system because it contains immunoglobulins from the mother.
  • Breastfeeding helps you bond with your baby and can lead to a healthier, calmer baby.

Breastfeeding provides benefits for your baby, and it can also provide benefits for you too, including:

  • Helping lose the weight you gained during pregnancy
  • Helping to balance your hormone levels
  • Providing the convenience of on-the-go nutrition for your baby, so you can enjoy activities again.

Breastfeeding provides all the nutrients so your baby can thrive and grow. Breastfeeding can also give you peace of mind knowing you are doing the best for your baby.

These are just a few of the many important benefits of breastfeeding. Your pediatrician can help you learn tips and techniques to make breastfeeding easier for you and your baby.

Your pediatrician can also help if you are having difficulty breastfeeding, or if you are experiencing soreness and discomfort while breastfeeding.
