I just love breastfeeding.
I'm told it's really useful and profitable for the baby. It builds her antibody. It is the most easily digested, and will provide everything she needs. She does not even need to drink water as long as she is on full breastfeeding.
Yes, I'm finding all of them quite true and more. The bonding time is priceless.
I love it that I can provide for my baby fully just by breastfeeding. She is 5 months now and perfectly healthy. Growing up so fast, talkative and her hands grasping at everything interesting near her.
WHO recommends that we give the baby solid food only after 6 months old. I'm planning to breastfeed her as long as I can, even up to 2 years.
I'm just so thankful that I can enjoy this period of my life. With my first child I didn't have fun, I couldn't stand the pain. I ended up fully breastfeeding only for 3 months. With this one, I was ready and fully committed to it. So when encountering problems, I did not give up.
My advice to all new mothers is just to commit yourself to it.
Breastfeeding is really the best for our baby.
