Breastfeeding Provides Babies Defense From Common Illnesses! Read This!

Want to keep your baby as healthy as possible? Here's even more good news about nursing: Breastfeeding provides babies with some defense against common illnesses such as: 

  • ear infections 
  • vomiting
  • urinary tract infections 
  • diarrhea 

Research has found that infants younger than the age of 1 who are breastfed exclusively for at least four months were less likely to be hospitalized for croup and bronchiolitis. Even infants in daycare were less likely to be sick if they were breastfed!
