I got this from a mama on CM just wanted to share the benefits of breastfeeding!! Its wonderful & I luvv how I can bond with my daughter by doing this...

All mothers who havent given it up.. Kudos to you!! Yayy!!

::Thanks::

Breast milk has no cost! Free is the best!

- I don't have to worry about finding bugs or any other weird stuff in my milk and then having my milk recalled 

- It's always warm and ready

- No washing bottles! One less chore makes me a happy mommy!

- All the goodies that are in breast milk. I want my baby to have all the best stuff I can provide!

- Feeding hungry baby is as easy as waking up and popping a boob in their mouth. Convenience is great!

- I don't have to worry about running out of milk and going to the store to get more. 

- The risks of breast cancer decrease for me. That's a major plus!

- I don't have to worry about adding to my carbon footprint by throwing out bottles, bottle liners, empty formula cans and measuring spoons. 

- Breastmilk has a sweet flavor and smells good. I can't say I feel the same way about formula (yes I have a formula fed baby so I know all about it!)

- Breastfed baby poo doesn't have a very strong unpleasant odor. 

- I don't have to worry about accidentally feeding baby old milk (yes, I've done this). 

- Less problems with constipation in a breast fed baby. 

- One less thing I have to pack (or forget) in the diaper bag. 

- Breastfeeding burns calories. Enough said =)

- Breast Milk changes to meet the needs of growing baby.

- It may help reduce the risk of SIDS (that's a chance I'll take even though it 'may')

- Reduces the chance of PPD. That's something I don't want to go through

All true!

Also descreases chances of getting ovarian cancer in both mother and daughter.  Also a study showed that boys breastfed for 6 months or more have a higher IQ. and also Michael Jordon and Albert Einstein were all breastfed til the age of 3 yrs old.
