Breastfeeding has been consistently observed to improve metabolism in mothers and their offspring.
Notwithstanding the mother child bonding and nutritional benefits, breastfeeding is
associated with a decreased risk of acquiring metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus in mothers, obesity and type 1 diabetes mellitus in their children.
Early initiation and exclusive breastfeeding should therefore be highly encouraged and strongly supported.
The HARGC concurs with these recommendations as published in the Journal cited below.
