Learning Content: It is universally agreed that breast milk is preferred method of feeding newborn, because it provides numerous health benefits to both the mother and the infant; it remains the ideal nutritional source for infants through the first year of life (Kleinmann, 2004) Advantages of Breastfeeding to the Mother Breastfeeding may serve as a protective function in preventing breast cancer Breastfeeding reduces the cost of feeding and preparation time Breastfeeding provides an excellent opportunity to enhance a true mutual bonding between mother and child Advantages of Breastfeeding to the Baby Leukocytes in breast milk provide protection against common respiratory infectious invaders Breast milk contains the ideal electrolyte and mineral composition for human growth Breast milk contains more linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid for skin integrity and less sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus than do many formulas Breast milk also has better trace elements such as zinc. These levels of nutrients are enough to supply the infants needs Breast fed babies appear to be able to regulate their calcium/ phosphorus levels better than infants who are bottle fed. Decreased calcium levels in a baby can lead to tetany (muscle spasm) Weaning Weaning is defined as accustoming the baby to discontinue breastfeeding by substitution of other nourishment. At any age, breast feeding should be discontinued gradually to prevent engorgement and pain in the mothers breast while still providing satisfaction to the infant. If weaned before 12 months, infants should be weaned to formula, not whole milk, so that they can continue to receive the added vitamins and low solute load of commercial formulas.
