Breast milk is 
Best for Your Baby Breast milk is the perfect food for your baby. It is the only food your baby needs during her first six months. A baby is not ready for other foods, except formula, during the first few months of life.

A breastfed baby usually doesnít need water. However, you may give her water if the weather is hot and your home is not airconditioned. Donít add sugar or honey to the water. Donít give flavored drinks or soda pop to your baby. Donít give fruit juice to a newborn baby.

Breast milk is best for your babyís health. Breastfed babies donít get sick as often, and they usually donít have as many allergies. They may even be smarter! Also, breastfeeding seems to protect mothers from certain types of health problems.

Mothers often find that breast milk is the easiest way to feed their babies. Also, there is no cost.

You donít have to wash and sterilize bottles and nipples when you breastfeed. This leaves more time for other things. Breastfeeding your baby can even help you lose some of the weight you gained when you were pregnant. Breastfeeding can be a pleasing experience for baby and mom.
