  • There is no feeling to describe the child suckling at your breast and letting go to give you a big smile; and knowing that the growth of your baby came from what your body produced.

  • Breastfeeding makes you feel good, the hormones produced during nursing have an endorphin effect giving you a relaxed feeling.
     
  • The strong bond developed with nursing is much more intense.
     
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are giving your baby the best start in life.
     
  • Breastfeeding contributes to a healthier weight for both mother and child.
     
  • Breastfed babies know their moms and will never confuse them with a sitter.
     
  • Breast milk taste great! Sweet tasting! Variations in taste according to foods moms eats. Have you ever tasted formula?
     
  • You have a great excuse to sit down and relax.
     
  • You can nurse while sleeping. Nursing moms get more rest than formula feeding moms.
     
  • Breastfeeding saves moms about 7 hours a week off their feet.
     
  • No screaming baby in the middle of the night waiting on the formula to heat up.
     
  • It's the only time you can ever lose weight without dieting or exercise!
     
  • Breastfeeding is more convenient, when traveling, all you need is to take diapers, the milk is always available, sterile, and the right temperature.
     
  • During times of disaster or emergencies, you don't have to worry about finding formula.
     
  • Breastfed babies smell great....spit ups don't stain, or smell, and poopie diapers are not offensive...(until solids are introduced)
     
  • Breastfeeding requires the use of only one arm....you can do other things while breastfeeding, (except cooking and driving)
