Is Breastfeeding Good for You? Breasts 101

Is Breastfeeding Good for You?

Should women breastfeed or bottle-feed? It’s the big debate in the world of motherhood, and it’s not always an easy answer.

No pressure, moms, but health experts say breastfeeding is the best option. Breastfeeding saves money, requires no bottle washing, and helps develop a close mother-child bond.

It even has some pretty amazing health benefits, including:

  1. Reducing the risk of breast cancer by 20%.
  2. Reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke, ovarian cancer and Type 2 diabetes.
  3. Burning an additional 500 calories per day. (That’s right — that baby weight could come off in less time!)

We think those are some pretty good reasons to drop the bottle.

Looking for more information? Resources and tools are available to support women throughout their breastfeeding journey through the CDC,, and The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, better known as WIC, provides educational information about breastfeeding to women in all U.S. states and territories.
