5 interesting facts about breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is cheap

Did you know that breastfeeding can save you up to 200 Euros a month? The nursing mom deserves a gift ;-) Start creating your wish list!

Breastfeeding helps you lose weight

Breast-feeding makes you lose the extra kilos gained during pregnancy more quickly. In fact, in order to produce the milk that is used to feed the baby, the mother consumes about 700 Kcal per day; the equivalent of the energy that would be consumed cycling for an hour at a speed of 30 km/h. Who would have ever thought it!

Breastfeeding helps your baby develop a bright mind

The reasons are not yet fully known but it seems that there are studies confirming that the presence of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the mother's milk and the co-presence of a growth factor with a direct effect on the development of the nervous system, are responsible for a best IQ.

Eating a varied diet while breastfeeding helps grow a gourmet

If the mother eats a little of all the milk it takes on an ever-changing smell and taste and in this way the baby will get used to the new flavors that he will then find in solid foods starting from the sixth month. It therefore helps the baby to develop his sense of taste by promoting a healthy relationship with food also for his future.

Breastfeeding allows your baby to choose his dessert each day

When the baby spontaneously detaches from one breast, in order to understand if he has normally completed the meal, the mother checks that she does not want to latch on to the other breast as well. Breast milk does not always have the same composition: more sugars and proteins are present at the beginning of the feed, while the last sucks contain milk with a higher fat content. If she chooses to attach herself to the second breast as well, she will have decided that her meal will be as sweet as a dessert!
