Breast-feeding. View of a 3 month old baby boy breast-feeding from its mother. Its wide eyes are maintaining contact with its mother's face, important in the bonding process. Human milk contains the ideal balance of nutrients for the baby and provides valuable antibodies which protect the child against infections such as gastroenteritis. It also provides the mother and child with a physical closeness which strengthens the bond between them.
