Everyone focuses on the benefits of breastfeeding for baby and usually include the benefits for mommies as an afterthought. Gunning to get back into their skinny jeans, mamas chat up the calorie burning benefits more than the others. Studies have found that women who nurse tend to have a lower risk of developing certain cancers. To further the pro-breastfeeding efforts, another study released says:
Among postmenopausal women, increased duration of lactation was associated with a lower prevalence of hypertension (high blood pressure), diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and cardiovascular disease.
While all of this is good news for moms who nurse, does it put pressure on those who choose not to or are physically unable to breastfeed? Did studies like this influence you to feed your child with the boob versus bottle?
