    Breastmilk aka liquid gold which contains the perfect amount of fat, protein, calcium and other nutrients necessary for baby.

    Breastmilk alone is enough to feed your baby for the first 6 months of life.

    Breastmilk production increases with demand that means the more you breastfeed, the more you produce milk.

    Breastmilk production is increased in the first two months after childbirth but slows down and it’s still enough for your baby.

    Breastmilk doesn’t sour in the breast and it doesn’t harm your child. In fact it prevents diseases such as diarrhea, vomiting, ear infections e.t.c

    There are a lot of Do It Yourself uses of breastmilk, for example it can be used as facials for the mother, used to treat some ear and eye infections in baby, even catarrh.

    Visit your lactation consultants for more information.

    The importance of breast milk can never be overemphasized.¬†Breast milk provides the ideal nutrition for infants. It has a nearly perfect mix of vitamins, protein, and fat — everything your baby needs to grow. And it’s all provided in a form more easily digested than infant formula. Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria.¬†Research shows that children that are well Breastfed have higher IQ. No matter how you weigh it, the benefits is overwhelming.
