Why BreastFeed

Extra: BreastFeedingYourBabies, BreastFeedingBasics

Points to Consider

Breastmilk contains all the nutrients required by the newborn baby. It also contains non-nutritional components that may promote infant health, growth, and development, such as antimicrobial factors, digestive enzymes, hormones, trophic factors, and growth modulators.

Breastmilk composition is not constant and varies with stage of lactation, breastfeeding pattern, season, and parity. (How can any formulated infant milk that is generally one-size-for-all used as substitute for breastmilk??)

It also differs among individuals and among communities, for reasons that are not well understood.(same irony as above)

Human milk has a unique composition, which differs from that of other mammals in its ingredients and their concentrations.

All mammal species produce milk, but the composition of milk for each species varies widely and other kinds of milk are often very different from human breast milk.  

Today it is now recognized that there is no commercial formula that can equal breast milk. In addition to the appropriate amounts of carbohydrate, protein and fat, breast milk also provides vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes and hormones – all of the things that a growing infant will require. Breast milk also contains antibodies from the mother that may help the baby to resist infections.

Whole cow’s milk does not contain sufficient vitamin E, iron, or essential fatty acids, which can make infants fed on cow’s milk anemic. Whole cow’s milk also contains excessive amounts of protein, sodium, and potassium which may put a strain on an infant’s immature kidneys. In addition, the proteins and fats in whole cow’s milk are more difficult for an infant to digest and absorb than the ones in breast milk. Evaporated milk may be easier to digest due to the processing of the protein but is still nutritionally inadequate. A significant minority of infants are allergic to one or more of the constituents of cow’s milk. These problems can also affect formula milk derived from cow’s milk.


Human children feeding on mother cow? Isnt it extremely absurd?!!! It’s against nature. And we know all that is against nature will destroy itself, just as human civilization whose young infants inherits more of cow’s wild attributes. Research and the spread of information regarding breastfeeding have been commonly suppressed by those who have power and money standing at the top of pyramid, as greed drives multinational companies that produce milk not willing to lose profits nor its share market.
