Since infants are fragile and their bodies not fully developed, they need adequate nourishment and special care.

Breastfeeding mothers are not as likely to develop later life osteoporosis. During pregnancy, they are also able to lose the gained weight from being pregnant and have lower risks of ovarian, uterine and breast cancer.
There are also benefits gained by the mother when she breast feeds her baby. Women grow both emotionally and physically from bonding with her child as she breast feeds. Just as the milk from her breasts are specifically designed to nourish infants, this milk also aids in the mother’s health. For example, oxytocin is released by breastfeeding mothers which are hormones that cause the uterus to quickly return to its original size. Weight is also lost more easily by a woman who breast feeds. As the bodies of mothers produce milk, they burn more calories than usual. This helps them lose weight. You can even look at it like the gained pregnancy weight is actually going to serve as a lactation source of energy.
