Science tells us that breastfeeding and breastmilk provide all the nutrients and antibodies to give babies the very best start, with health benefits for babies and mothers. As the backbone of early nutrition, breastfeeding is a key influence on adult health, intellect and longevity. Research shows that people who were breastfed as babies are less likely to be overweight or obese, are less prone to diabetes, and perform better in intelligence tests. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that every child should be exclusively breastfed for six months, with partial breastfeeding continuing until two years of age.
