After birth the infant becomes totally dependent on the outside environment and is reliant on its parents to provide all its needs. If the infant is given an imbalanced diet, signs of specific nutritional deficiencies will develop. Some of these may appear almost immediately, others only after many weeks or months, depending on the state of the body stores of the specific nutrient involved.
Breast-feeding is noted by leading organizations, physicians, and other experts as the best choice for feeding a healthy infant. The composition of breast milk is a perfect match for each child, containing all of the essential nutrients and antibodies a baby needs. This result in less diarrhea, constipation and digestive upsets – three conditions which exacerbate malnutrition in infants. According to the report “World Market for Clinical Nutrition Products (Infant, Parenteral and Enteral Foods), 5th Edition” by Kalorama Information, antibodies in breast milk are equally important as the nutrients as it provides the baby with the ability to fight off disease and improve immune system function. Breast milk advantages over formula are significantly noted in the ability for breast milk to change and adapt in composition and providing nutrients with the baby’s growing needs.
