Why hospitals require mothers to do breast feeding than give the baby formula milk? Why it is so important to them? Actually breast milk is one of the healthiest milk that a baby can have. Because the cells, hormones and antibodies in breast milk protect babies from illness and breast milk also has the right amount of sugar, water and protein to help your baby to grow. It actually has all the nutrients that your baby needs. Breast milk is also easy to digest compared to formula milks.
It is important for your baby to get the colostrum from your breast milk as it is very rich in protein and antibodies that protects your baby. And other than the nutrients and protection that your baby can get from your milk, it can also save you money as you don’t have to buy expensive formula milk to be sure that your baby is getting enough nutrients that he needs.
