More and more women are choosing to breastfeed their babies—and for good reason. Breast milk is the perfect baby food. Breastfeeding also has health benefits for moms.
Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for the first 6 months of a baby’s life. This means feeding only breast milk and no other foods or liquids unless advised by the baby’s doctor. Breastfeeding should continue up to the baby’s first birthday as new foods are introduced. You can keep breastfeeding for as long as you and your baby would like.
