Moms benefit from breastfeeding, too

breastfeeding-picWe know that breastfeeding is the best food for most babies. But did you know that breastfeeding can have benefits for moms, too?

The New York Times recently reported on a study showing that women who breastfeed at some point during their lives have a lower chance of facing high blood pressure, diabetes and cardiovascular disease later on in life. And the longer a woman breastfeeds her baby, the better her chances are of avoiding these health issues during her lifetime. It’s still not clear how this relationship works, but it’s one more reason to breastfeed if you can!
