breastfeeding benefits

Breastfeeding is a way to nourish your baby from your own breast milk from your own body. Breast milk is produced in mammary glands. From there, it travels through milk ducts to openings in your nipples. When your baby suckles on your nipples, your body releases the hormones prolactin and oxytocin. Prolactin controls milk production and oxytocin controls the release or let down of milk through milk ducts.
