So, you want to regain your figure after delivery your baby? Well, it is
one of many benefits of breast feeding. But before we go deeper into
breast feeding stuffs, let's find out what it is. Breast feeding is
giving human breast milk to infants to meet their nutritional needs.
Breast feeding your baby (directly from your breast) can only be done by
you. It can be done exclusively or can be supplemented with bottle
By doing breast feeding, you provide breast milk which is the best source
of nutrition for the first 6 months of life. Breast milk contains
appropriate amounts of carbohydrate, protein, and fat, and provides
digestive enzymes, minerals, vitamins, and hormones that infants require.
Breast feeding also gives your baby antibodies from you that can help the
baby resist infections. Even more, many experts recommend that you should
do breast feeding your baby within the first 30 minutes of life.
Here, some benefits of breast feeding for your baby:

right temperature

Once you master the art of breast feeding, feeding the baby will be very
convenient for you. You will not need to worry about washing and
sterilizing bottles, preparing feeds, boiling water, etc.
Breast feeding will help you regain your figure faster than if you were
not breastfeeding
