Breastfeeding

Purely natural, healthy and intimate

Breastfeeding is purely natural, healthy and intimate! Lunavi offers you all the support to make breastfeeding a success and a pleasure. No artificial infant formula can match the unique properties of breast milk. And breastfeeding provides a special bond between mother and baby, a bond that only a mother can provide.

Benefits of breastfeeding for the baby

  • Breast milk contains everything a baby needs: protein, fat, lactose, vitamins, iron, minerals, water and enzymes, in the precise quantities needed for optimal growth and development.
     
  • Babies who are breastfed are healthier. Breast milk contains substances that prevent harmful bacteria from developing in the intestines that cause intestinal infections and diarrhoea.
     
  • Breast milk is clean, free of bacteria and provides protection against infections.
     
  • Breast milk is always the right temperature and does not need to be prepared; it's ready when your baby needs it.

Benefits for the mother

  • Breastfeeding reduces bleeding after childbirth and reduces the risk of anaemia.
     
  • Breastfeeding enables the mother to get her normal figure back faster.

 

Lactation consultant guidance

Breastfeeding usually goes without a hitch, but sometimes there are circumstances that make it a bit more difficult and during which you could use some extra help or advice. You can then count on one of our three specially trained lactation consultants. They have the IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) international lactation consultant diploma and are affiliated with the NVL (Dutch Association of Lactation Consultants).
