Discover why breast milk is so important for newborns

Human breastmilk is the natural food produced by the mother to feed the newborn.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends breast milk as exclusive food for infants up to 6 months of age, and as complementary feeding up to 2 years old, since it contains all the necessary nutrients for proper growth and development.

The first breastmilk that is produced in mothers is called colostrum and in addition to the nutritional contribution it provides to the baby, it plays a fundamental role in the development of the newborn's immune system.

Among other benefits that breast milk provides we have:

Those children who don’t eat breastmilk are more prone to contracting diseases, their IQ is lower compared to infants, they are physically fragile and prone to digestive diseases such as diarrhea.
