Are you or were you a breastfeeding mom? There are several benefits of breastfeeding for mom and baby. Below are some powerful benefits to be proud of!
Breastfeeding is not an easy journey for many moms. And for some, presents many challenges and emotions to work through.
I observed this process, personally, for all 4 of our kids and am grateful to be married to such a strong woman, and mom.
For all the breastfeeding moms out there today, I offer these powerful benefits as means for encouragement.
Additionally, I encourage you to check out MomsBloom.org for resources and consider entering in their giveaway drawing for a chance to win FREE wellness packages, including a VIP package from Rice Wellness Center.
There are key substances in breast milk that help a growing baby strengthen its intestinal track to build a strong immune system.
Here are a few powerful substances found in breast milk for babies, that in most cases, are more readily absorbed and utilized by baby:
+ Bifidus growth factor- good bacteria that guards against infections
+ Immunoglobulins- antibodies to protect any vulnerabilities from growing IgA protection
+ Interferon- combats viruses and prevents them from replicating and spreading
+ Enzymes- inhibit growth of parasites such as Giardia lamblia (most common in infants causing diarrhea
+ Iron & Lactoferrin- inhibits growth of bacteria
+ Zinc- development of thymus gland (T-cell) function
+ Antioxidants- white blood cell protection
+ Selenium and Taurine- reduce susceptibility to infection and important for brain development and digestion
+ GLA- regulation of cells in the immune system, liver support, minimizing allergies, and promoting health of lymphocytes
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms in the world!
