  2. Hear about the fundamental things you need to know before your baby is born and what to expect when they arrive and start breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is so important and one of the best things you can do for your baby. There is no formula that comes close to mimicking breastmilk. Your milk contains every vitamin, mineral, and nutritional element your baby needs, and your milk is customized just for your baby. Babies who are breastfed are at a lower risk for ear infections, intestinal upsets, respiratory problems, allergies, dental problems, and their immune system will be stronger. Breastfeeding produces prolactin and oxytocin, which are hormones that foster a connection to your baby and help you recover from birth better. By understanding the basics you will have a solid foundation to start building a successful breastfeeding relationship with your new baby.   You can read the full article and resources that accompany this episode by clicking here.    For more evidence based information visit the Pregnancy Podcast website.
