More breastfeeding 'would save NHS millions'
Proven key benefits - and potential savings - associated with breastfeeding a baby include a reduced risk of bowel infection (gastroenteritis), lower respiratory tract infection (bronchiolitis), middle ear infection (otitis media) and an uncommon, but serious, condition called necrotising enterocolitis (bowel tissue death). Breastfeeding also brings benefits to the mother, such as a reduced risk of breast cancer.
