Dental Clinique Blog in Arlington Heights, IL

Breastfed babies do funny things. Ever see a baby latch onto their favorite toy, their brother’s nose or—gasp—a mannequin at the store? Babies are born with the innate ability to seek out and grab hold of their mother’s milk. Place a newborn baby on Mom’s tummy, and he will inchworm his way up to the breast for his first drink. Amazing, right? Breastfeeding is far more than nutrition too. Comfort, a rest from play, and did you know…it also helps baby’s tiny jaw develop properly? We know breastfeeding isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay! But if you go that route, and want to learn more about some cool little-known benefits to breastfeeding, read on!

How breastfeeding can help your baby

There you have it! If you knew all that already, good job! For more resources on breastfeeding, we recommend finding a La Leche League leader in your area, or reading The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. Above all, momma, do what’s best for your family and savor those baby cuddles while you can!
