Abstract: Modern science confirms this. Breast milk provides babies with proteins, calories, mineral and vitamins in the perfect balance needed to support growth in their early most-vulnerable months of life. Breast milk, contains immunolo- gical and anti-infective agents which protect against the common infections of infancy. Breast milk is constantly changing, adapting to the spec;:ific immunolo- gical and nutritional needs of the rapidly growing baby, and because breast milk supply is regulated by demand, fully breast-fed babies are seldom obese. Breast-feeding provides more than milk to the baby: the psychological interaction between the nursing mother and the child facilitates a close relationship and promotes harmonious development of the baby.
