Benefits of Breastfeeding & Supplementation (FORMULA)

While we all agree that all mommies are amazing, not all are great at everything. Just we have different potentialities; some moms also find I challenging breastfeeding their young ones until weaning. Fortunately, the good news is that you can always provide the baby with breast milk and also have the freedom to supply him/her with supplements. Supplementing simply means providing baby formula or expressed mild alongside breastfeeding. As a mother, it's essential to understand the benefits of ensuring your baby with supplements alongside breastfeeding. For this reason, we've provided you with these benefits to keep you informed.

While sometimes formula feeding is necessary, one major thing you need to understand is that breastfeeding should be the first priority for your child. It contains numerous, diverse, and convincing benefits your baby needs for healthy and robust growth. The benefits of breastfeeding not only extend to babies but also mothers, families, and society as a whole.
Every expert feeding expert agrees that mother's milk is nature's ideal food for feeding babies. There is no other food that can substitute this golden benefit. It has what it needs to provide optimal growth and development for your kid. For instance, there are about two hundred protein constituents, fats, carbohydrates, minerals, trace metals, hormones, vitamins, antibodies, enzymes, and the list is endless.
Besides, breast milk is easy to digest. Unlike the supplement, the fluid reduces the chances of your baby developing gas or colic. Research has it that babies who exclusively breastfeed experience less diarrhea and constipation.
However, if you can't provide your baby with enough breastmilk, which is normal, the next thing you should think of is introducing him/her to supplements or baby formula. While they can't be compared with mothers' milk, they work pretty well, and if balanced can ensure your baby grows healthy and strong.

One notable benefit of supplement feeding is that it's flexible, hence provides you with freedom. Therefore, if you are committed to other responsibilities, let's say work, baby formulas are the thing to go for. It is also worth remembering that if you are not breastfeeding or pumping milk, your milk supply will begin to dwindle. Therefore, you should continue pumping or breastfeeding at least once a day to maintain a steady supply of milk.

Baby supplements also contain nutrients your baby needs. With the improved growth of technology, companies are now manufacturing baby formulas with a wide variety of nutrients, vitamins, proteins, among others. This, therefore, makes it almost the same replica of breast milk when it comes to nutrients.

Secondly, baby supplements provide your baby with different tastes other than their mother's milk. This significantly prepares your child to wean. For instance, when the time comes for him/her to get solid foods, they will have little or no problem adapting.
Last but not least, medics propose babies be given supplements, especially in cases where the mother has chronic illnesses. Such motives are entirely geared towards protecting the child's health and status.

Final take

Breastfeeding is the best form of food every mother should give his or her child. It contains the right composition for optimal baby growth and development. However, if you can't breastfeed your child as recommended, the other alternative you should look for is baby supplements. In as much as they aren't the best as compared to breast milk, they do contain minerals and nutrients to keep your child grow strong and healthy. In a nutshell, both mother's milk and supplements are right for your baby.
