Breastfeeding: good for moms too!

Breastfeeding is not only good for baby! According to a study by the University of Pittsburgh, women who had breastfed were less likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease later in life.

The study of 139,861 postmenopausal women shows that woman who had breastfed for over a year had 10% less chance of developing a cardiopathy.

Even breastfeeding for a couple of months can reduce the risks of high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
