Benefits Of Breast Feeding

HERE WE GO....

1. LOSE CALORIES
Most people don't know, but breastfeeding is known for helping women lose that post baby weight! 

If you are pumping 25 ounces a milk a day, you are burning the same amount of extra calories as if you were running 5 miles every single day. 

Also, when you nurse, your body releases certain hormones that shrink your uterus back down to its former pre-pregnant size.
To determine how many extra calories you are burning due to breastfeeding, take your total pumping output for the day and multiply it by 20.
 (# of oz * 20)/0.8 = Total Breastfeeding Calories

 

2. HEALTHIER BABY
The incidences of pneumonia, colds and viruses are reduced among breastfed babies.

 

3. STRONGER BONES 
Women who breastfeed have a lower risk of postmenopausal osteoporosis.

 

4. SAVE MONEY

The cost of formula can range anywhere from $134 to $491 per month. That's $1,608 to $5,892 in one year! UGH.

 

5. DELAYS MENSTRUATION 

Breastfeeding your baby around the clock—no bottles or formula— will delay ovulation, which means delayed menstruation. Breastfeeding can be 98 percent to 99 percent effective as a post baby birth control option if a few guidelines are followed: Your period must not have resumed; you must breastfeed at least every four hours around the clock; you must not give your baby any pacifiers, bottles or formula; and you must be less than six months postpartum.

 

 

Patiently waiting to be late... ;)
