Breast milk is not only known for its nutrients that is safe for the baby but it also provides anti-bodies that will help fight bacteria and viruses to maintain a healthy body for the baby. It boosts the immune system of the baby to ensure that the body can kill the germs that can potentially make the baby ill.

Studies shows that breastfeeding helps fight later health conditions such as type 1 and 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and other diseases that is lethal enough to kill a person. This is because breast milk acts like a vaccine because it contains anti-bodies that fights diseases that could harm the baby.

Mothers who often give their babies formulated milk rather than breast milk has a greater chance of getting a weak immune system, so they are more vulnerable to allergies, measles, coughs and colds and other common diseases. Breast feeding also gives the mother a relaxing feeling because of the chemical oxytocin that is being released in the brain.
