Parents of baby Landon failed to see the signs of dehydration and was too late to realize that their child was literally starving. Baby Landon, exclusively breastfed by his mom, died a few days after he was born due to cardiac arrest.
Researchers reported that mothers who gave birth vaginally without the help of an epidural tend to be happier and more satisfied with their birth.
The findings are promising, especially in a time when hospitals are struggling to combat drug-resistant superbugs like MRSA and drug resistance is on the rise.
Breastfeeding has previously been thought to prevent against obesity in babies and in children.
A new report published by the Save the Children campaign revealed that breastfeeding right after birth can significantly increase a child's chances of survival.
