In honor of Breastfeeding week I am focusing on BF this whole week.
Here is a simple list of benefits of breastfeeing for your LO.

Breastmilk is perfectly made for your baby, its has the right balance of nutrients and will even vary its make up for your child for optimal benefits.

Breastfeeding protects against many illness, ear infections, diabetes, pneunomia, and kidney infections.

Breastfeeding reduces your child's risk of developing allergies, asthma and eczema.

Breastfeeding reduces the risk of SIDS.

Breastfeed babies have less teeth carries.

Breastfeed babies have a higher IQ.

BF babies have less chance of iron deficiency.

BF babies are less likely to be obese as adults.

They are receiving the mother's antibodies, so they are building them up with out having to be exposed and risk getting ill.

Their antibodies response to vaccines is higher.

There are more benefits, like the emotional bond but I just wanted to do a quick over view so you can see how important BF is for your baby.
