A number of organizations said that breastfeeding for six months or more is the optimal way of feeding infants. According to Babycenter, babies who are breastfeeding should do so exclusively from birth to four months. Comfort & Harmony™ employees who have reviewed the research agree with this assessment.
Comfort & Harmony™, the brand behind the mombo™ nursing pillow, understands there are a number of reasons why solids should be delayed.
1. Breastfed babies have greater protection from illness. Breast milk contains many immune factors. Studies have shown that babies who were exclusively breastfed for 4 or more months had fewer ear infections, a lower probability of respiratory illness, a lower risk of asthma, and other health benefits.
2. Breast milk gives a baby’s digestive system time to develop. If solids are started before a baby’s system is mature enough to handle them, they are poorly digested and may cause problems like digestive upset, gas, and constipation.
3. Breastfeeding decreases the risk of food allergies. Many studies show that prolonged breastfeeding results in a lower incidence of food allergies. The immune components of breast milk protect babies from allergens during their early months.
4. Breast milk helps to protect baby from future obesity. Children who are breastfed are less likely to have increased body fat and weight during adolescence.
Moms can get help with breastfeeding from the mombo™ nursing pillow from Comfort & Harmony. For a more comfortable experience for both mom and baby, the mombo features a two-sided design called Firm2Soft™. Each side provides a different kind of support. The firm side provides extra support while baby is in his or her mother’s arms breastfeeding or sleeping. The soft side of the pillow is cozy for lounging, tummy time and, eventually, sitting up. Unlike any other nursing pillow on the market, mombo comes with a removable vibration unit.
