If you want to give your baby the best start possible, breastfeeding is the best. Nothing compares to a mother’s milk because it has all the unique ingredients that meets the nutritional requirements for your new baby. Breast milk has the perfect balance of elements such as fats, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Experts agree that your baby will need nothing more for the first 6 months of their life.

Breast Milk

So what happens when your body isn’t producing enough of milk? This is a common problem that Moms worry about, but if baby is having 4 to 6 wet diapers each day, then that’s a good sign that you are producing enough. But what if that wasn’t the case? Many Moms recommend More Milk Plus by Motherlove. This all natural, organic product is a safe and effective herbal formula designed to quickly increase breast milk.

Tips for Breastfeeding

Anther common problem in the first week of breastfeeding is sore nipples. There are a number of reasons why this happens but the most common is the how baby is being positioned at the breast and how they are latching on. When baby doesn’t get enough breast tissue in their mouth, this leads to sore nipples for Mom and is inefficient for baby because they usually won’t get enough milk.

Once your nipples become sore, crack and even bleed this makes breastfeeding a difficult task. But using Nipple Cream by Motherlove will soothe and heal almost instantly. All the ingredients are organic and safe for ingestion so it doesn’t have to be washed off prior to nursing.

Even if you have a tough start with breastfeeding, it is worth it for you and your baby. Studies show that for Mom it reduces the risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer and lessons the chance of developing osteoporosis. Not to mention the cost of formula which averages $1,200 per year to formula feed your baby!

Derrick and Patrice Jelliffe, pioneers in breastfeeding research, stated that breastfed infants are "biochemically different." This difference in body chemistry may be the reason they are healthier. While babies are breastfeeding, they have fewer and less serious respiratory infections, less diarrhea, and less vomiting. When breastfed babies do become ill, they are less likely to become dehydrated and need hospitalization.
