The bond that strengthens between a breastfed baby and its mother is parallel to the strong bond between the moon and the stars. The solid connection of a breastfed baby to its mother becomes very noticeable as the child grows. The child is more calm, obedient, tapped into his/her mother’s thoughts (almost telepathic) and more intelligent — than the child fed powdered milk out of a can.
It is very important for ALL mothers to breastfeed their children. There is nothing better than natural warm milk from a mother. It is the BEST nutritional choice if a mother is healthy. Breast milk is known to contain essential long-chain fatty acids and a chemical called insulin-like growth factor, which alone could be responsible for boosting intelligence and strengthening the bond between mother and child. Not only that, breast milk helps infants fight off meningitis, asthma, obesity, SIDS, allergies, asthma, ear infections, diarrhea, and respiratory infections. However, breastfeeding not only benefits the child, but also the mother. How so?
Breastfeeding helps shrink the uterus, which greatly aids nursing moms to return to their pre-pregnancy shape and weight quicker. It also burns calories and helps lower the risk of breast cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and the risk of uterine and ovarian cancer.
As you can see, there are many POSITIVE perks for feeding your babies natural breast milk. However, there are certain instances in which mothers should NOT breastfeed.
If a mother is severely depressed, under a lot of stress, or just a mess — she should not breastfeed. Mothers that breastfeed should be physically and mentally HEALTHY. Internal anxieties, physical illness, fears, stress, emotional turmoil, and mental problems CAN get passed onto your child through breast milk. Just because the umbilical chord has long been cut, does not mean a magnetic chord has not appeared in its place. Naturally, a magnetic chord will always exist between a child and its mother, but when you breastfeed, your breast pumps out all your mental anguish into your breast milk — just as a funnel is used to fill a car with gas. If that funnel is dirty, so will be the gas — and depending on the content that is mixed with the gas — the car may run into problems. Or, if a car requests only premium gas and you give it regular gas, it may not run as efficient. Breast milk runs the same way. Always make sure your milk is PREMIUM. Why would any mother want to pass on her emotional and mental problems onto an innocent child? And if a mother is not healthy, your milk will lack the positive nutrients your child NEEDS.
You are what you eat applies to breast milk. You child grows into a reflection of the condition you were in when you were feeding him/her with your body. So please be smart about it. As for men, the perks for you are good and plenty. Not only will your woman develop bigger breasts and you will save a lot of money on powdered formulas, but she and your child will become way more healthier going this route — than by the artificial way. No way is ever better than the natural way. If you get breast implants, you immediately destroy the possibility of strengthening the sacred bond between you and your child, and eliminate the beautiful health benefits for you and your baby. Natural breast milk is COMPLEX and cannot be imitated. — Suzy Kassem (06/2012)
