Great blog on a critical investment to jumpt start a healthy life Leslie! Human milk, not only offers protein, sugar, and fat to help the development of children, but nowdays when everybody of talking about the spread of infectious diseases, it should be clearly remembered that breastfeeding provides many substances that benefit the baby’s immune system, including antibodies, immune factors, enzymes, and white blood cells. These protect the baby against a wide variety of diseases and infections not only while breastfeeding but also after he/she has weaned. Commercial formula products cannot offer this protection!!!!.
