Definition of

The breast is a unique organ
that is designed for the
purpose of providing the
newborn with nourishment.
The anatomy of the breast and
the way it makes milk are
unique to the female. The
breast makes milk in response
to several different stimuli.
These include the physical
emptying of the breast,
hormonal stimulation, and
sensory stimulation that the
Breast Anatomy
Definition of
Breastfeeding is feeding
of an infant or young
child with breast milk
directly from female
human breasts , not
from a baby bottle or

Benefits of
Breastfed babies are at lower risk of
Easy to digest, optimal blend of
nutrients, low risk of contamination.
Bonding, pain relief, maternal
confidence & empowerment.
Milk is always available: shorter
hospital stay.
Benefits for
Breastfeeding burns extra
calories, so it can help you
lose pregnancy weight faster.
It releases the hormone
oxytocin, which helps your
uterus return to its pre-
pregnancy size and may
reduce uterine bleeding after
birth. Breastfeeding also
lowers your risk of breast and
ovarian cancer. It may lower
your risk of osteoporosis, too.
Benefits for
Breast milk provides the ideal
nutrition for infants. It has a
nearly perfect mix of vitamins,
protein, and fat -- everything
your baby needs to grow. And it's
all provided in a form more easily
digested than infant formula.
Breast milk contains antibodies
that help your baby fight off
viruses and bacteria.
Breastfeeding lowers your baby's
Breastfeeding has been linked
to higher IQ scores in later
childhood in some studies.
What's more, the physical
closeness, skin-to-skin
touching, and eye contact all
help your baby bond with you
and feel secure. Breastfed
infants are more likely to gain
the right amount of weight as
they grow rather than become
overweight children. The AAP

The best position for you is the one
where you and your baby are both
comfortable and relaxed, and you
don't have to strain to hold the
position or keep nursing. Here are
some common positions for
breastfeeding your baby:

Cradle position. Rest the side of

your baby's head in the crook of
your elbow with his whole body
Football position. Line your
baby's back along your
forearm to hold your baby
like a football, supporting
his head and neck in your
palm. This works best with
newborns and small babies.
Side-lying position. This
position is great for night
feedings in bed. Side-lying also
works well if you're recovering
from an episiotomy, an incision
to widen the vaginal opening
during delivery. Use pillows
under your head to get
comfortable. Then snuggle

When to wean
In many cultures a baby is
breastfed for two or three years.
This is not the norm the world
over. While weaning is a personal
decision, nutritionists and
physicians advise breastfeeding
for at least one year because by
that time most infants have
outgrown most of their food
allergies and will thrive on
alternative nourishment. We urge
way of filling your babys need for
intimacy and appropriate
dependency on other people. If
these needs are met early on, your
child will grow up to be a sensitive
and independent adult. We have
noticed that children not weaned
before their time are:

Important Principles for
Begin at ~ 6 mo of age.
Avoid foods with high allergenic potential
(cow's milk, eggs, fish, nuts, soybeans).
At the proper age, encourage a cup rather than
a bottle.
Introduce 1 food at a time.
Energy density should exceed that of breast
Iron-containing foods (meat, iron-supplemented
cereals) are required.
Zinc intake should be encouraged with foods
such as meat, dairy products, wheat, and
Phytate intake should be low to enhance
mineral absorption.
Breast milk should continue to 12 mo; formula

You can begin by mixing a
teaspoon of one of the
following foods with your
baby's usual breast or formula

as banana or cooked fruit such
as pear or apple .

Always stay with your baby
when they are eating.
Remember to keep your baby
sitting in an upright position,
well supported (for example in a
high chair) and facing forwards
when introducing solid foods.

Most babies know when they

have had enough to eat and
there is no point in trying to
'persuade' them to eat more.
Similarly, if they refuse to try a
new food then it is important
not to make a fuss. Simply take
the food away and try it again
on another day. You may need
to offer a food 10-15 times
