benefits of breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is a great way to bond with your newborn. CarePro has the supplies you need to get started!

Both moms and babies can benefit from breastfeeding.

Benefits for babies:

Breast milk contains antibodies and hormones that keep them healthy. Breastfed babies often have lower instances of:

  • Ear infection
  • Diarrhea
  • Respiratory infection
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Type 2 diabetes

Breast milk is often easier for babies to digest than formula. Many formulas are derived from cow’s milk, which can take a while for your baby’s stomachs to get used to.

Benefits for moms:

Moms can enjoy these perks while feeding their babies:

  • Convenience- fewer bottles to warm up, no formula to mix and carry
  • Accountability for a healthier lifestyle- what you eat and drink is essentially what you are feeding your baby
  • Saving money- you don’t have to buy formula (or only a little, if you choose to). This is a substantial savings- depending on the brand and type, formula can cost anywhere from $10 – $40 per can or more.

CarePro carries equipment to make breastfeeding your baby as easy as possible. You can find breast pumps and accessories for purchase at CarePro Home Medical and CarePro Pharmacy – Pa


If you prefer to rent a breast pump, visit CarePro Pharmacy – North Liberty. Our North Liberty location also carries comfortable, stylish nursing bras (Ameda, Medela and Bravado brands).
