Breastfeeding provides nourishment , yes, but it provides so much more than that. Breastfeeding is the natural method of feeding a baby , but does so much more than that. Breastfeeding is special and it's a shame people don't understand what breastfeeding does for a child. People say things like, "Just pump and bottle feed" implying all babies get out of breastfeeding is milk and that is so not true. I have listed plenty of reasons showing you why breastfeeding is so much more than milk.
