From the moment a baby is born breast milk has everything he or she needs to grow and develop into a healthy active toddler and beyond. Breastfeeding helps a baby in lots of ways that artificial formula* milk just can’t quite match. For many mums and babies breastfeeding comes naturally, for others it can be a struggle, but if you can it’s worth sticking at it because the benefits really are worth the effort!
