The minute your baby has left the womb, he or she has needs: affection and nourishment. Breastfeeding will strengthen your bond and breast milk will fully satisfy your baby's needs. As your baby grows and develops other needs, the composition of your milk will change.
Strengthen that special bond by breastfeeding your baby
Breast milk is the best nourishment for your baby. In addition, it establishes an intimate bond between you and your newborn child. We have known this for centuries, but what makes breastfeeding such a good thing?

Look after yourself
If you do, your baby will always get the right combination of nutrients needed to develop further. Nature could use some help here though. It is important to make sure that the baby is fed well, and that the mother eats and drinks enough and takes good care of herself
Right after birth the important organs – the liver, kidneys, lungs, brains and the central nervous system – start developing. Breast milk contains exactly the right ingredients for this development.
