Breast milk provides the perfect combination of fat, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and antibodies. It is the ideal nourishment for the newborn child and is also important in preventing later allergies. Breast milk is always available when needed and is always at the right temperature. Breastfeeding fosters skin contact between mother and child and thus promotes healthy development. The infant enjoys the undivided attention of his mother and is always by her side. A deep sense of trust develops, and the mother is recognised as an absolutely reliable partner.
Breast feeding also has a positive effect on the development of the jaw and teeth. The sucking action strengthens the jaw, lips, tongue and muscles of the child’s head and neck and allows them to grow into the right shape. Nursing takes effort on the part of the baby; he becomes tired and sleeps peacefully. Without this effort, the jaw and teeth may develop improperly. Breast feeding is also the most environmentally friendly choice for feeding your baby.
