Unless there are adverse conditions where the mother isn’t able to feed her newborn, you should always exclusively breastfeed your baby for six months, says Dr. Neha Bansal, a new-born specialist.
Here’s how mother’s milk is better than powder milk for your baby:
Mother’s milk contains natural anti-bodies which helps the baby to fight with diseases and remain healthy.

Your milk has all the nutrients powder milk claims to have and much more. In fact, the nutrients of the mother’s milk naturally change proportion as the baby grows and his/her needs alter.

Contrary to the popular view, mother’s milk is more convenient as you can provide it anytime without the hassles of carrying formula milk and everything else that’s required to feed.

Not only is it good for the babies’ health, but the mothers also have low risk of ovarian cancers, diabetes, and other diseases.
If you have to provide formula milk to your baby under any circumstances, it’s always recommended to consult a child-specialist before you start doing so.
