- Breastfeeding helps newborns feel calm and secure, but it has the same effects on moms as well. When you breastfeed, your body releases oxytocin, a hormone that induces a calm, relaxed feeling. No wonder mom and baby often both doze off during a nursing session!
- Breastfeeding is free. Unlike costly formula, breast milk is a free commodity. You simply need to keep doing in order to maintain your milk supply—and eat a healthy, balanced diet, of course.
