I don't know if number 5 is incredibly accurate or not. I was only breastfed for 2 weeks and I'm quite smart (mentally gifted, not kidding).
10 Reasons why you'll want to breastfeed:
It's simple and quick (no bottles, measuring or mixing!).
It protects your baby from diseases, viruses, stomach pain, and infections, and lowers their risk of allergies and asthma.
Your milk contains oxytocin - the "love hormone", which helps you and your baby bond with one another.
It also contains over 400 vitamins, minerals, fats, and proteins NOT present in any formula out there.
Breastfed babies have higher IQs. (The longer you breastfeed, the higher the IQ of the child.)
It's custom-tailored specifically to your child's nutrition and immunity needs.
It protects your baby against SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
It burns about 500 extra calories a day for YOU. Breastfeeding = quicker postpartum weight loss!
It contains special brain-promoting proteins and fats not found in any formula out there.
It's 100% free (well, pumps and nursing bras aren't, but they're still cheaper than a year's worth of formula).
