For the Mother Helps Lose Pregnancy Weight: Breastfeeding burns extra calories, so it can help mothers lose pregnancy weight faster. It releases the hormone oxytocin, which helps to return the uterus to its regular size and may reduce uterine bleeding after birth.

Mother-Baby Bonding: The physical closeness, skin-to-skin touching, and eye contact all help your baby bond with you and feel secure. Breastfeeding also offers a wonderful opportunity to reinforce the emotional connection between mother and baby.

Bonus for Both Environmental Impact: Breastfeeding also offers environmental benefits, including no waste from formula cans and bottle supplies. It's a completely natural and environmentally sustainable method of feeding.
