NAWIRI MALEZI BORA LAUNCH

The benefits of breastfeeding extend well beyond basic nutrition. Breast milk is the safest and healthiest food a mother can ever think to give her baby. It is easily digested and provides all the nutrition a baby needs for the first six months.  Studies have it right that babies who breastfeed have better mental development and emotional security. They also have better jaw and tooth development and stronger immune systems.
  In addition to containing all the vitamins and nutrients, a baby needs the breast milk the first six months of life, breast milk is packed with disease-fighting substances that protect your baby from illness.
