7. Breastfeeding Helps Babies Bond with Mom

According to the Mayo Clinic, breastfeeding at all, but

especially exclusively for the first six months, can greatly reduce the risk of SIDS but please note there is no scientific evidence linking SIDS and breastfeeding. There is no reason for moms who didn't breastfeed and lost their darling to SIDS to imagine that if they had breastfed, baby would still be with us. The causes of SIDS are unknown and the link between SIDS and breastfeeding is still the subject of scientific research

. However, breastfeeding is the ultimate bonding experience for mom and baby. Skin-on-skin contact is ideal while breastfeeding! A healthy relationship fosters security, trust, and above all, good health for you and your little one!
