The ecological and health impact of breastfeeding your baby makes such a difference....!! From saving money on infrastructure and materials to produce bottles and formula, to medicines and doctors needed with the aftermath of not having your immune system formed properly with Secretory Immunoglubulin A (sIgA), which is The primary antibody/ immune system response to irritants at the mucosal level is sIgA produced by the B lymphocytes (immune system cells) present in all mucosal linings.
sIgA acts as the ‘first line of defence’ helping to protect against the entrance of foreign substances into the body such bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and food particles (via the damaged gut wall). You cannot get this in any supplements, be it lactose free, pea protein or grass fed cow formula, NOTHING produces this except a human being’s breastmilk.
So important to support Mothers & Partners to be able to provide this for their babies!!
