1.- I would say Breastfeeding is one huge benefit. Not only the child gets his nutrition but the maternal-child connection.

My sister works full time and still breastfeeds. I stay home and opted to not breastfeed (not going to explain none or your business). Our kids are all thriving and doing well. A former friend of mine should put her daughter in daycare she ignores her all day so she can be on Cafemom, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and so she can watch TV. If the mom actually spends time with the kids being home is a great thing. So many do not spend much more quality time than working moms.

Well, not to be a naysayer, but I think all of these things can be accomplished by a working mom (and believe me, my daughter knows who her mom is!) I think the biggest benefit is when the child is sick. It's hard to take time off when needed, but I can drop her off with my step mom and I know she gets catered to and spoiled which is great for a cranky sick child.
