Doctors say breastfeeding is best for newborns. Specifically, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that babies be breastfed exclusively for about the first 6 months. Following the introduction of solid foods, breastfeeding should continue through the first year of life and even beyond, if desired.As a new mom, one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby is to eat a healthy diet.
Breast milk contains antibodies that help your baby fight off viruses and bacteria.Breastfeeding lowers your baby’s risk of having asthma or allergies.
Talk with your pediatrician before serving eggs, fish, citrus, and yogurt if your baby is less than a year old because these foods can cause an allergic reaction.
