7 Best Baby Milk Formulas in Nigeria

7 Best Baby Milk Formulas in Nigeria


It is generally agreed that mother’s milk is nature’s best offer for the nourishment and proper healthy development of a baby. Heaps of research findings abound on which the above assertion is hinged. Amongst many benefits, mother’s milk contains everything that is needed by the baby for at least the first six (6) month of life. The thick yellow substance released from the breast called colostrum which is rich in protein and low in sugar has been found to be very important for the baby because of its very useful components. Research has proven that mother’s milk contains loads of antibodies which help to fight the numerous infections and diseases that attack the baby at the early stages of infancy. There is also the belief which has now been scientifically substantiated that mother’s milk makes babies smarter owing to its speedy facilitation of the development of the brain. Breast milk also helps the baby to maintain a healthy weight. Apart from the above benefits babies derive from breast milk, mothers also gain a lot when they breastfeed. It has been established that breastfeeding helps mothers to lose weight, fight depression, maintain a good health through the reduction of the probability of breast and ovarian cancer, etc. This not forgetting the fact that exclusive breast feeding is very economical as it saves the mother the huge resources and time that would have gone into the purchase of baby food.

Though breast milk comes with loads of benefits, many  realities in today’s world constantly stifles the possibility of its availability to the baby. Today, the adverse economic realities faced around the world have made many mothers of child bearing age to seek a career or vocation outside the home to augment the family’s income.
