Breastfeeding equals a happy baby


Breast milk is the most natural food for your baby. It contains all the nutrients the baby needs, it is always at the right temperature, it boosts the maturation of his defenses and it helps you establish a very special bond with your child.

How to feed a newborn

Your pediatrician or midwife will explain how you should feed your baby. Keep in mind that your child will set the feeding pace he needs and therefore you will have to breastfeed him on demand, without rigid guidelines. To do so, you must eat balanced meals and drink at least two liters of water each day.

The composition of each woman's breast milk is different and it varies during feeding as well as according to the time of day and how you eat.

Suggestions to keep in mind

  • The World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months of the baby's life, as long as this is possible.
  • Once the baby has been born, do not give it a dextrose solution of any type unless instructed by your pediatrician.
  • Have the baby latch on to your breast as soon as possible, and try to remain calm and relaxed.
  • Your body will produce colostrum during the first few days, and then the breast milk will come in.
  • Take care of your breast and wash it daily by showering. Rest when the baby sleeps.
  • Drink two liters of liquid each day (water, milk, juice, etc.) and eliminate alcohol and tobacco.
  • Offer your breast whenever the baby is hungry or every two to three hours. Your baby must nurse in order to stimulate your body so it produces milk. In a few weeks, feedings will be increasingly spaced out.
  • Feedings tend to last ten to fifteen minutes on each breast, and then four or five minutes as of the second month.

Types of milk

Colostrum: Thick, yellowish (due to beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A) fluid that is produced during the first week after delivery. It has a large amount of vitamins and proteins that are easily absorbed as well as bactericides and antibodies that will act as the infant's natural defenses while his immune system matures.

Transitional breast milk: This type of milk appears between two and three weeks after birth. Its intermediate composition varies until the composition of mature breast milk is reached.

Mature breast milk: This type of milk is produced as of the infant's second or third week of life. It has a wide variety of nutritional components and is rich in carbohydrates and lipids; its composition adapts to the baby's needs. This milk has fewer proteins than transitional milk and its concentration is more stable. 


  • SERUM PROTEINS RICH IN LACTOFERRIN AND IMMUNOGLOBULINS :: They strengthen the immune system and act as first defense barrier against infections, thus avoiding the appearance of gastrointestinal infections and infections of the respiratory tract.
  • PROBIOTICS :: They increase the concentration of bifidobacteria at intestine level and stimulate the immune system.
  • PREBIOTICS :: They help bifidobacteria and lactobacillus to proliferate in the intestine, as well as act as soluble fibre: They stimulate the development of microflora and help to normalize the bowel transit.
  • LCPUFA :: They contribute to the correct maturation of the brain, the central nervous system and the visual function
  • β-PALMITATE :: It helps absorb calcium and mineralise it at bone and dental levels, and at the same time allows the formation of softer stools and aids bowel transit.
  • α-LACTALBUMIN :: Protein fraction of high biological value that allows one to adapt the protein content to the degree of maturation of the baby, and which at the same time has a high concentration of essential amino acids

Benefits for the mother

It boosts the emotional relationship between the mother and child. It favors uterine regression following childbirth. It reduces the potential appearance of breast cancer. It helps lose some of the weight the mother gained during pregnancy. Greater availability at any time.

Benefits for the baby

Its composition is ideal for most infants since it covers the nutritional needs during the first months of life.

It protects against infections by providing antibodies and reducing the risk of diarrhea, otitis, respiratory infections, etc.

Since it contains proteins that are specific to the human species, it helps prevent the appearance of food allergies. It adapts to the specific needs of each child.
