Breast feeding provides nourishment as well as foster a loving bond between a mother and a child.
Breastfeeding is a natural way of bonding with your child. Nursing and holding the child close causes the brain to release a hormone-like substance called oxytocin. Its release is especially pronounced with skin-to-skin contact. This hormone has been called the “love hormone” or the “cuddle hormone” or the “bonding hormone”. It provides a sense of calm and well being and helps the mother and child to bond together. It is involved in those mothering feelings we experience after giving birth to a child.
Breastmilk contains a wonderful hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK), which induces sleepiness, both in the baby and the mother. It is the easiest method to put your child to sleep.
Also, while nursing, the child will usually get much more skin-to-skin contact with Mommy – and that can make a difference in how well your baby grows. Studies show how premature infants grow much better if they are massaged and touched a lot by a human hand, and the same surely applies to babies born at term.
If your breast is no longer full and attractive as it was before you started breastfeeding your child, try breast enhancement program. This will give you for a fuller, firmer shape – like before breastfeeding or even better!
