First of all, you need to have a positive attitude. The success of breastfeeding depends very much on your self-confidence. If you want to breastfeed, be confident it will work and it will be pleasant and easy.
Shorter postpartum period
Breastfeeding will help you during the postpartum period, because when a woman breastfeeds, her body produces oxytocin – love hormone, which is responsible for the milk flow and the contracting of the uterus. Thanks to that the risk of postpartum hemorrhage is also reduced.

It is the natural way of feeding newborn, known since the beginning of human existence. You have probably heard the opinion many times that since breastfeeding is natural, you do not have to prepare for it. Preparation is definitely needed to breastfeed. The fact of reading breastfeeding guide will make you confident and able to handle this seemingly simple act of natural feeding.
Returning to your body shape before pregnancy
Milk production takes a significant toll on the body. During one single day, a breastfeeding woman’s body burns up to hundreds of calories and it will help you get in shape faster.
Strong bond with the baby
