Women who breastfeed can have reduced chances of the risk of breast and ovarian cancer, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Whereas breast milk can help protect children against some short and long-term illnesses and diseases. Breastfed babies can have a lower risk of asthma, obesity, type 1 diabetes, and are also less likely to have ear infections and stomach bugs.
