Study finds breastfeeding benefits moms health later in life
Its well-known that breastfeeding has many health advantages for infants. But a recent study shows breastfeeding is good for moms health too. For brand new moms, Dr. Goebel admits the idea of breastfeeding for an entire year can seem overwhelming. But, she said it gets easier after the first couple of weeks, and enlisting support, whether through a lactation consultant, or other moms, is key. Dr. Goebel said even if you dont make it to your goal of breastfeeding for a full 12 months, any breastfeeding is better than none.
