I choose the objective to explain the benefits of breastfeeding for both baby and mother. For my project, I did a children’s book drawn by a child (mostly because I have no artistic bone in my body). This aspect of creating a book was meant to be able to show even children the importance of breast milk. In the book, there are two brothers one who drinks the honey (breast milk) and one who does not. Then throughout the story, it hints at the brother who did drink the breast milk seemed to be healthier and happier than the one who did not. The mother also experiences some side effects from each child. Breast milk offers more advantages than formula. Breast milk has hormones, cytokines, and growth factors. There are many benefits for the babies themselves. Children who were breastfed tend to have few instances of allergies, asthma, and eczema. They are also at a lower risk for diabetes and autoimmune disorders. Many children experience improved brain maturation and are less likely to be sick. Not only does breastfeeding help protect your child as a baby these benefits carry into adulthood. Teens and adults who were breastfed are less likely to develop arthritis, lupus, heart disease, and breast cancer. The mom also benefits from breastfeeding too. They are less likely for urinary tract infections, postpartum bleeding, anemia, and postpartum depression. After a baby, if a mother breastfeeds it stimulates the uterus to contract and return to normal size faster and promotes weight loss after birth. Breastfeeding can also create better bonds with a mother and baby. A mother may be more likely to learn the baby’s cues. It creates a sense of calmness and increased confidence. Breastfeeding produces soothing hormones. These benefits also depend on how long a mother is breastfeeding her child. Breastfeeding for at least three months is associated with a lower risk of disease or infection. Breastfeeding for at least six months is associated with lower allergies, asthma, and eczema. The benefits of breastfeeding range through all areas of life and do not just stop when the mother stops breastfeeding. These benefits carry on even up until old age.
