Why breast-feeding is good for the mother?

breast-feeding is good for new mothers. There are no bottles to sterilize and no milk formula to buy, measure and mix. A nursing mother is forced to get much-needed rest. She must sit down, put her feet up , and relax every few hours to nurse. Nursing at night is easy and convenient as well.

Since nursing uses up a lot of calories, it is easier for a nursing mother to lose the extra fat and weight put on during pregnancy. Nursing stimulates the uterus to contract back to its original size. Nursing is also a natural contraceptive though not a reliable one. Incidence of breast cancer is lower in mothers who breast-feed their children.
