Breast-feeding. A mother breast- feeds her baby cradled in her arms. Breast-feeding is thought to be better than bottle-feeding because human milk contains an ideal balance of nutrients, as well as antibodies that protect the baby against infection. Breast-feeding also provides the mother and child with a physical closeness that strengthens the bond between them.
