Continuing from where we ended on last week: *Colostrum.* Between the second and a fifth day after the baby is born, the milk changes from colostrum to transitional milk which is thinner, thicker and more plentiful. This milk also contains important *antibodies* which will continue to protect your baby. After about tenth to fourteenth day, the colostrum is gone but the mature milk will continue to produce *antibodies*just concentrated as the colostrum. The protein in breast milk is much easier to digest than the protein in cows milk of formula making the child or your baby less likely to suffer from digestive problems.
*IMPORTANCE OF BREASTFEEDING*
America Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), World Health Organisation (WHO), and UNICEF* have also researched earnestly and properly into that and have also stated that, Breast milk caries antibodies and still has the immunologic factors.
*1* . It is more needed after six and when the babies are exposed to much more illness and infections as the babies go all out.
*2* . Breastfeeding lowers the risk and duration of common illness such as *ear infections* , *Asthma* and *Obesity.*
*3* .Exclusive breastfeeding(only feeding the baby with the breast milk and without adding not even water for six months) helps the mother not to ovulate and can prevent pregnancy. *4*. Proper Breastfeeding prevents breast cancer later in women at old age by regulating excess estrogen which cause breast cancer and other cancers. *5*. Proper and exclusively breastfeeding helps the child’s brain to function very well, and makes them becomes very brilliant children in life.
*HOW SHOULD I BREASTFEED*
TO BE CONTINUE. STAY TUNED.
