Breastfeeding is God's way of giving a new mother power to nourish her child..even people who are poor can afford it, nothing can match it's composition and the antibodies it has acts as a protective cover for an infant who is low on immunity and is usually vulnerable to many infections.
It's amazing that breast milk can change it's composition as per a growing child's need, it's like an elixir that has a bit of everything that a mother eats, it's odour helps a child develop different tastes and inclination for food later and the best thing is that though a mother- baby bond starts in the womb itself, breast feeding helps create a life long bond..
For many it's easy to breast feed their child since birth while for others it's difficult. It had taken me a month after becoming a mother to help my child breast feed successfully as latching was the biggest issue I faced. I still remember my babies crying and unsatisfied face throughout nights..later a pillow on my lap and one on side and the child on it, assistance from family members and doctor and persistence and patience from my side helped me.
Hope this picture helps someone in need!!
