Breast milk helps protect babies from diseases during infancy

And even later in life

1 min to read Nov 4, 2016

Breast milk is the ideal food for babies in the first six months and sets the best possible foundation for a healthy life. It helps protect them from health issues such as diarrhea, ear and respiratory infections, and allergies.

The protective effects of breast milk go far beyond its benefits during infancy and childhood. Breastfeeding also plays a role in reducing the risk of developing health conditions in later life such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and hypertension.
